Support Society Help

Man Responsibility Society

It used to be that readers were relegated because they considered themselves far above society, and so the metaphor of the ivory tower developed.

Money Politics Society

In a society that tries to standardize thinking, individuality is not highly prized.~Alex Grey

Power Society Political

When our bodies are sick and people extend their sympathy, bring us soup, offer up solutions. When our minds are sick, people tend to shy away from you, be afraid, or call you outright crazy.

Sympathy Society People

I am as frustrated with society as a pyromaniac in a petrified forest.~A. Whitney Brown

Men Philosophy Society

No international court can ever substitute for a working national justice system. Or for a society at peace.~Adam Hochschild

Peace Justice Society

World Society Doing

Relationship Money Society

Great Law Society

Good Society Think

Journalism is about results. It's about affecting your community or your society in the most progressive way.~Anas Aremeyaw Anas

Society Political Opening

Curiously, a principle affects your life whether you are aware of it or not. For instance, the principle of gravity was working long before the apple ever fell on Newton's head.

Life Society Free

You're isolated as a writer, so I always envied people who could get up early and drive to work and fit into society.~Aram Saroyan

Work Society People

If co-operation, is thus the lifeblood of science and technology, it is similarly vital to society as a whole.~Arthur Holly Compton

Technology Science Society
