Famous quotes containing the word existing:

    For the existing world is not a dream, and cannot with impunity be treated as a dream; neither is it a disease; but it is the ground on which you stand, it is the mother of whom you were born.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    We can imagine a society in which no one could survive as a social being because it does not correspond to biologically determined perceptions and human social needs. For historical reasons, existing societies might have such properties, leading to various forms of pathology.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)

    The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)
