Famous quotes containing the words culture and/or johns:

    I know that there are many persons to whom it seems derogatory to link a body of philosophic ideas to the social life and culture of their epoch. They seem to accept a dogma of immaculate conception of philosophical systems.
    John Dewey (1859–1952)

    In love’s deep womb our fears are held;
    there God’s rich tears are sown
    and bring to birth, in hope new-born,
    the strength to journey on.
    —Rob Johns (20th century)
