Famous quotes containing the words societies and/or honor:

    All that remains to the mother in modern consumer society is the role of scapegoat; psychoanalysis uses huge amounts of money and time to persuade analysands to foist their problems on to the absent mother, who has no opportunity to utter a word in her own defence. Hostility to the mother in our societies is an index of mental health.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    The fiery trial through which we pass, will light us down, in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
