Famous quotes containing the words culture and/or popular:
“The fact remains that the human being in early childhood learns to consider one or the other aspect of bodily function as evil, shameful, or unsafe. There is not a culture which does not use a combination of these devils to develop, by way of counterpoint, its own style of faith, pride, certainty, and initiative.”
—Erik H. Erikson (19041994)
“Kings govern by popular assemblies only when they cannot do without them.”
—Charles James Fox (17491806)
