Famous quotes containing the words security and/or social:

    To have in general but little feeling, seems to be the only security against feeling too much on any particular occasion.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    Whether in the field of health, education or welfare, I have put my emphasis on preventive rather than curative programs and tried to influence our elaborate, costly and ill- co-ordinated welfare organizations in that direction. Unfortunately the momentum of social work is still directed toward compensating the victims of our society for its injustices rather than eliminating those injustices.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)
