Famous quotes containing the words society and/or honor:

    The function of literature, through all its mutations, has been to make us aware of the particularity of selves, and the high authority of the self in its quarrel with its society and its culture. Literature is in that sense subversive.
    Lionel Trilling (1905–1975)

    But why should honor outlive honesty?
    Let it all go.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
