Famous quotes containing the words day, information and/or society:

    There is only one way left to escape the alienation of present day society: to retreat ahead of it.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)

    So while it is true that children are exposed to more information and a greater variety of experiences than were children of the past, it does not follow that they automatically become more sophisticated. We always know much more than we understand, and with the torrent of information to which young people are exposed, the gap between knowing and understanding, between experience and learning, has become even greater than it was in the past.
    David Elkind (20th century)

    One great Society alone on Earth,
    The noble Living, and the noble Dead.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
