Famous quotes containing the words society and/or knowledge:

    Many of us do not believe in capital punishment, because thus society takes from a man what society cannot give.
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)

    A young man is not a proper hearer of lectures on political science; for he is inexperienced in the actions that occur in life, but its discussions start from these and are about these; and, further, since he tends to follow his passions, his study will be vain and unprofitable, because the end that is aimed at is not knowledge but action. And it makes no difference whether he is young in years or youthful in character.
    Aristotle (384–323 B.C.)
