Famous quotes containing the words saint, culture and/or society:

    There’s so much saint in the worst of them,
    And so much devil in the best of them,
    That a woman who’s married to one of them,
    Has nothing to learn of the rest of them.
    Helen Rowland (1875–1950)

    No race has the last word on culture and on civilization. You do not know what the black man is capable of; you do not know what he is thinking and therefore you do not know what the oppressed and suppressed Negro, by virtue of his condition and circumstance, may give to the world as a surprise.
    Marcus Garvey (1887–1940)

    ...many men choose a wife amid the deft-fingered clerks in preference to the society misses. The woman clerk has studied the value of concentration, learned the lesson that incites to work when a burden bears heavily upon her strength. She knows the word of self- reliance, and the fine courage that springs from the consciousness that a good result has been accomplished by a well-directed effort.
    Clara (Marquise)
