Famous quotes containing the word culture:

    Unthinking people will often try to teach you how to do the things which you can do better than you can be taught to do them. If you are sure of all this, you can start to add to your value as a mother by learning the things that can be taught, for the best of our civilization and culture offers much that is of value, if you can take it without loss of what comes to you naturally.
    D.W. Winnicott (20th century)

    The second fundamental feature of culture is that all culture has an element of striving.

    It is of the essence of imaginative culture that it transcends the limits both of the naturally possible and of the morally acceptable.
