Famous quotes containing the word society:

    The most remarkable aspect of the transition we are living through is not so much the passage from want to affluence as the passage from labor to leisure.... Leisure contains the future, it is the new horizon.... The prospect then is one of unremitting labor to bequeath to future generations a chance of founding a society of leisure that will overcome the demands and compulsions of productive labor so that time may be devoted to creative activities or simply to pleasure and happiness.
    Henri Lefebvre (b. 1901)

    Someone who does not write books, who thinks a lot, and who lives in unsatisfying society will usually be a good letter- writer.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    I do then with my friends as I do with my books. I would have them where I can find them, but I seldom use them. We must have society on our own terms, and admit or exclude it on the slightest cause.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
