Famous quotes containing the words society, world and/or information:

    The applause we give those who are new to society often proceeds from a secret envying of those already established.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Whether I get on in the world is a question; but I certainly don’t get on very well with the world.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    Many more children observe attitudes, values and ways different from or in conflict with those of their families, social networks, and institutions. Yet today’s young people are no more mature or capable of handling the increased conflicting and often stimulating information they receive than were young people of the past, who received the information and had more adult control of and advice about the information they did receive.
    James P. Comer (20th century)
