SOCIETY Quotes


“How can a society that exists on instant mashed potatoes, packaged cake mixes, frozen dinners, and instant cameras teach patience to its young?” One of many society quotes, this one by Paul Sweeney rings so very true. Society takes many forms, from informal circles based on common interests to entire countries or continents that are bound inextricably by common bonds. By their nature, societies are reflective of the many individuals who inhabit it. Society quotes let us understand the dynamics of a society, and what makes a society great or causes it to fall apart at the seams, either from internal or external forces.
