Famous quotes containing the words culture and/or context:

    It is not part of a true culture to tame tigers, any more than it is to make sheep ferocious.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The hippie is the scion of surplus value. The dropout can only claim sanctity in a society which offers something to be dropped out of—career, ambition, conspicuous consumption.

    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)
