Famous quotes containing the words culture and/or popular:

    The time will come when the evil forms we have known can no more be organized. Man’s culture can spare nothing, wants all material. He is to convert all impediments into instruments, all enemies into power.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    It is clear that in a monarchy, where he who commands the exceution of the laws generally thinks himself above them, there is less need of virtue than in a popular government, where the person entrusted with the execution of the laws is sensible of his being subject to their direction.
    —Charles Louis de Secondat Montesquieu (1689–1755)
