We look for the sermon in the suicide, for the social or moral lesson in the murder of five. We interpret what we see, select the most workable of the multiple choices.
History or custom or social utility or some compelling sense of justice or sometimes perhaps a semi-intuitive apprehension of the pervading spirit of our law must come to the rescue of the anxious judge and tell him where to go.
I am a pretty good actor. Most of my friendships are based on the fact that I pretend to be outgoing and funny in social situations, but when I get home, I tend to isolate myself because I am actually somewhat bipolar and introverted.
Trying to change social, national, or global realities without working on human consciousness means there is no serious intention.
I think what drives me is a sense of, well, who is going to do it if you don’t do it? I think that one of the things that we’ve seen over time, especially with progressive social movements, is most of them – it’s surprising to people – are sort of driven by that.
If Obama has his way, the change that is coming is a new America: ‘fair,’ leveled and social democratic. Obama didn’t get elected to warranty your muffler. He’s here to warranty your life.

He that attends to his interior self,
That has a heart, and keeps it; has a mind
That hungers, and supplies it; and who seeks
A social, not a dissipated life,
That has a heart, and keeps it; has a mind
That hungers, and supplies it; and who seeks
A social, not a dissipated life,

So, we think about God far to easily and that’s because of a lot of social, intellectual, and scientific changes that have taken place in the western world and that has made God very problematic for a lot of people.
Obama is a leveler. He has come to narrow the divide between rich and poor. For him the ultimate social value is fairness. Imposing it upon the American social order is his mission.
Our character is mainly shaped by our primary social community – the people with whom we eat, play, converse, and study.
The theatre is a spiritual and social X-ray of its time.

I thought in this country, the best social program was a job. Yet minimum wage jobs arent paying enough to keep families out of poverty
[Social Security ] is not in crisis at this stage. Leave Social Security alone. We have a lot of other places we can look that is in crisis. But Social Security is not.
The title song of David Bowie’s ‘Young Americans’ is one of his handful of classics, a bizarre mixture of social comment, run-on lyric style, English pop and American soul.
The trouble with not being into social networking is that people think you’re anti-social when you’re only anti-networking.
One-fourth of humanity must be eliminated from the social body. We are in charge of God’s selection process for planet Earth. He selects, we destroy. We are the riders of the pale horse, Death.
Remember all of the ‘me too’ social networks built just to have a social feature Facebook and MySpace didn’t have? I built one for political discussion called Essembly. It enabled unique and potentially transformative social interactions, but only 20,000 people ever used it.
The prejudice surrounding AIDS exacts a social death which precedes the actual physical one.
The distinctive principle of Western social philosophy is individualism.
You have to abolish pension plans. You have to abolish social spending. You have to raise taxes. You have to have at least fifty percent of the European population emigrate, either to Russia or China. You would have to have mass starvation. Very simple. That’s the price that the Eurozone thinks is well worth paying.
Secularism denounces supernaturalism and promotes a nonreligious or antireligious basis of social organization and morality.
Why is it that Christian activists are regularly pilloried for basing social standards on biblical texts while liberals are actually praised for mixing religion and politics?
As the saffron tints and crimson flushes of morn herald the coming day, so the social and political advancement which woman has already gained bears the promise of the rising of the full-orbed sun of emancipation. The result will be not to make home less happy, but society more holy.
Real morality is possible when the sanctions for morality are also tangible and real. Therefore, atheism shifts the basis of morality from faith in god to obligations of social living. Moral conduct is not a passport to heaven; it is social necessity.
I feel conflicted about my relationship with social media.
Last night, I had a telephone townhall for my constituents back in Vermont, and we had 11,500 people on it. And I had people on Social Security saying if getting fewer benefits will help us on the debt, they’re for it. And I had a farmer saying that he’s had subsidies for 35 years but we can’t afford them anymore.
China seems unpredictable because it has a distinct culture and social system. It is still a mystery to other parts of the world, even though the veil of China has been lifted many times as a result of globalization.
Tokenism does not change stereotypes of social systems but works to preserve them, since it dulls the revolutionary impulse.
This is taking place inside Europe. This is taking place inside a once great nation. The nation that invented democracy. We are on the edge of total social breakdown. And frankly, as far as the euro is concerned and the austerity measures are concerned, the medicine is killing the patient.
I do think that part of literature’s job is to comment on and participate in the social issues of the time.
Only social patterns can control biological patterns, and the instrument of conversation between society and biology is not words. The instrument of conversation between society and biology has always been a policeman or a soldier and his gun.
The pressure on young chefs today is far greater than ever before in terms of social skills, marketing skills, cooking skills, personality and, more importantly, delivering on the plate. So you need to be strong. Physically fit. So my chefs get weighed every time they come into the kitchen.
I had begun what I thought might be a career in social work. I was married and deeply involved in the anti-war movement. I thought I’d go about saving the world one person at a time. I worked with kids, teenagers mostly, in neighborhood centers, on the streets, and eventually in a drop-in center.
Ghetto humor is the social twin of fantasy; together they sustain the powerless, who accomplish miracles through illusion.
Our preoccupation has always been to craft space in such a way as to induce social interactions that would in turn generate a sense of community and a culture, but starting from the very immediate issue of how action influences perception.
The free economy is not the enemy but the friend of social capital.
Some of the technologies that were created during the Industrial Revolution were appalling, such as capitalization, investment, social hierarchy, sexism, racism, and ecological destruction.
You gotta bear in mind, the youth – and this is just in Britain alone – have nowhere to go in the evenings. They’ve closed all the social centers. There’s not even a patch of grass to kick a ball on.
Fighting for social justice is not about leaving the mainstream. It is about being right in the middle of it.
This looks like one of those unwelcome social summonses which call upon a man either to be bored or to lie.
Evolutionary theory informs our understanding of some frankly inexcusable social behavior and renders it perfectly normal.
The notion that employees and companies have a social contract with each other that goes beyond a paycheck has largely vanished in United States business.
It should not be an act of social disobedience to light a cigarette. Unless you’re actually a doctor working at an incubator.
I have a message for all the birdies who try to get in touch with people online who they think might help them to meet me or give my personal information. That will never happen. Don’t believe anything anyone tells you on social media about me because not even my parents know what I am up to.
The shoe is very much an X-ray of social comportment.
If social protest is antithetical to art, what then shall we make of Goya, Dickens, and Twain?
When you are young in this world, you believe that the class of deductive truths about social matters is larger than it turns out to be. […] I have discovered, to my infinite regret, that most of the serious debates over the basic principles of any political order have an irreducible empirical content.
I is a militant social tendency, working to hold and enlarge its place in the general current of tendencies. So far as it can it waxes, as all life does. To think of it as apart from society is a palpable absurdity of which no one could be guilty who really saw it as a fact of life.
Prostitution is the most hideous of the afflictions produced by the unequal distribution of the world’s goods; this infamy stigmatizes the human species and bears witness against the social organization far more than does crime.
When you hear me say “by any means necessary,” I mean exactly that. I believe in anything that is necessary to correct unjust conditions-political, economic, social, physical, anything that is necessary.
When you’re fighting for social justice, one of my biggest pet peeves is speaking out of ignorance.
As human beings, we are always torn between individual freedom and the ability of choose our actions, and the need for at least enough social structure so that anarchy, chaos, and warlordery – or the war of all against all – can be avoided.
Most teens arenвЂ™t addicted to social media; if anything, theyвЂ™re addicted to each other.
The vast majority of us don’t want to face the fact that we’re in the middle of a sweeping social revolution. In sex. In spiritual values. In opposition to wars no one wants. In opposition to government big-brotherhood. In civil rights. In basic human goals. They’re all facets of a general upheaval.
Most people with good jobs, middle-class occupations, what have you, are only one pitfall away from social embarrassment and destitution. It’s so precarious. Even salaried people in the West now feel this sense of being trapped, not having the freedom to strike out.
The enterprise can fulfill its human and social functions only if it prospers as a business.
What are we seeking to achieve? We are seeking to optimize budget spending. I believe that even in such uneasy times we employ a very pragmatic approach towards economic and social issues. We do address major social problems and deliver on our promises to our people.
Education can and should do much influence social, moral and intellectual discovery by stimulating critical attitudes of thought in the young
I’d rather stay home and watch the tube than go out and make myself into a spectacle. I’m not uncomfortable with a social life, but it doesn’t appeal to me. It doesn’t seem to accomplish anything – it just leaves one wanting for more.
Authors of published papers and editors of scientific journals can, unfortunately, be slow to come to terms with criticism, and it’s good that we can use blogs to express specific criticisms of published articles and to use social media to disseminate these criticisms.
Of the modern critics, although I disagree with almost everything she says, I admire Mary McCarthy’s eloquence and social observation in ‘Sights and Spectacles’; she thinks in print, but she doesn’t have a real feel for the stage.
In America, one of our two major parties is dominated by extremists dedicated to destroying the social contract, and the other party has been so enfeebled by two decades of collaboration with the donor class it can offer only feeble resistance to the forces that are devastating everyday people.
I believe in infrastructure, I believe in investing in your hard assets. Where I think government starts to fail is when it starts getting itself weighed down with the social programs. And I think the American public just feels like a lot of that money is tossed aside and wasted.
See, at a certain point it becomes cool to be boy crazy. That happens in sixth grade, and it gives you so much social status, particularly in an all-girls school, if you can go up and talk to boys.
No job is more vital to our society than that of the manager. It is the manager who determines whether our social institutions serve us well or whether they squander our talents and resources.
I don’t take a great deal of interest in party politics. Social politics interests me a great deal more.
Because morality is a social necessity, the moment faith in god is banished, man’s gaze turns from god to man and he becomes socially conscious. Religious belief prevented the growth of a sense of realism. But atheism at once makes man realistic and alive to the needs of morality.
I think every program needs to stand the sunshine of righteous scrutiny. Whether it’s Social Security, whether it’s Medicaid, whether it’s Medicare.
I grew up in a very responsible, social, Democratic community, and destruction was a bad word. But, in California, destruction is a rad word. The juxtaposition of the two is really what made me into who I am today, in my battles with how fun it is to be bad, and how wrong it is to be bad.
When I watch animals, I realize I am watching individual with lives that matter, to them. It isn’t just another chicken or another mouse. She is that particular hen, autonomous and unique. He is that particular mouse with a unique life and social identity.
Even with all the negativeness of the whole social media thing, I still think it’s leaps and bounds more positive.
People adopt ideas when social, personal and financial trends intersect-a confluence that may seem random but usually happens ‘by design.
Ultimately, of what possible social significance is it if a person likes to masturbate over a shoe? It may even be non-consensual, but since we do not ask permission of our shoes to wear them, it hardly seems necessary to obtain dispensation to come on them.
Vivisection is a social evil because if it advances human knowledge, it does so at the expense of human character.
There’s something known as “memory conformity,” also known as “social contagion of memory,” which refers to a situation where one person’s telling of a memory influences another person’s account of that same experience.
It is the greatest folly of which a man can be capable to sit down with a slate and pencil to plan out a new social world.

Social intercourse, even friendship among most people, is a merely a business arrangement that lasts only so long as there is need.
Taxes are a universal burden in moral as well as in civil life. There is not a pleasure, social or otherwise, which is not assessed by fate at its full value!
I’ve got a Facebook page, but I’ve never put anything on it. I’ve got a presence on all the social networks, in fact, but I’ve never once sent a message. I’m there because, otherwise, someone’s going to pretend to be me.
[T]he ways in which the information we give off about our selves, in photos and e-mails and MySpace pages and all the rest of it, has dramatically increased our social visibility and made it easier for us to find each other but also to be scrutinized in public.
Social media doesnвЂ™t create negativity, it uncovers it.
Just as modern mass production requires the standardization of commodities, so the social process requires standardization of man, and this standardization is called equality.
And let us not forget the Social Security system. Recent studies show that undocumented workers sustain the Social Security system with a subsidy as much as $7 billion a year. Let me repeat that: $7 billion a year.
I sometimes think humor and satire are more effective techniques for expressing social statements than direct comment.
But Maastricht was not the end of history. It was a first step towards a Europe of growth, of employment, a social Europe. That was the vision of Francois Mitterrand. We are far from that now.
Over-population is the ’cause of drive-by shootings’ and other social ills, but the root of the problem is Christianity, which posits that people are more important than sea otters and elephants.
[Silvio] Gesell’s chiefwork is written in cool and scientific terms, although it is run through by a more passionate and charged devotion to social justice than many think fit for a scholar. I believe that the future will learn more from the spirit of Gesell then from that of Marx.
There’s always the tendency to transform the Church into an ethical agency, and of measuring the Church by the yardstick of social and cultural utility.
Founded in August 2003, MySpace would go on to be the most-visited social networking site in the world from 2005 until early 2008.
I have a lot of intention behind what I put out there. The reason all this stuff I do works together, the environmental and social, collaborating with ballet companies to score a show, the bike tour – all of that stuff comes together through community building with music.
Perhaps one of the more noteworthy trends of our time is the occupation of buildings accompanied by the taking of hostages. The perpetrators of these deeds are generally motivated by political grievance, social injustice, and the deeply felt desire to see how they look on TV.
Social media is the basis of my career. Since I was a kid I’ve always used the Internet as a space to express myself creatively.
Corporate Social Responsibility is a hard-edged business decision. Not because it is a nice thing to do or because people are forcing us to do it because it is good for our business
I don’t see social media as lending my voice as much as I see it speaking my truth. If you look at my open letters, the one I wrote about Blue Ivy too – you see, I am always as the foundation, talking about us being a better humanity. I believe in that.
I have nothing to fear from serious social studies of science, and I hope that my philosophy will help progressive science policies while showing that the most modern views of science are ignorant and regressive, even if they are accompanied by a leftist-sounding rhetoric.
I may think that hornets do not have an ideal social organization. But I know better than to poke their nest.
The future is our responsibility, but change will not take place until the majority loose confidence in their dictatorвЂ™s and elected officialsвЂ™ ability to solve problems. В It will likely take an economic catastrophe resulting in enormous human suffering to bring about true social change.
I am passionate about any effort to achieve social justice and equality, particularly for women.
Envy is always referred to by its political alias, ‘social justice.
We [with Neal Dodson and Corey Moosa] wanted to draw people in with a dialogue – whether it’s a creative process or a social issue or innovation of some kind; whether it was how we told the stories or what stories we told. We produced some online videos.
If we don’t preserve forest habitat for spotted owls, then soon we won’t have trees to refresh the air we breathe. And we’re realizing that this applies to social ecology, as well.
Having a social appetite for knowledge and wanting to develop and improve as a coach is important, but I believe in empowering people, particularly the other coaches that work with the team, giving them ownership and responsibility.
Society in the English countryside is still strangely, quaintly divided. If black comedy and a certain type of social commentary are what you want, I think English rural communities offer quite a lot of material.
Although elephants are far more distantly related to us than the great apes, they seem to have evolved similar social and cognitive capacities.
The youth should work on popularising central and state government schemes among people. The young generation should make social media their weapon.
Parents who spoil their children out of ‘love’ should realize that they are performing acts of child abuse. Although there are no laws against such abuse–no man-made laws anyway–this spiritual mistreatment may result in as much long-term personal and social damage as the worst physical abuse.
We live in a culture of a big me. We’re encouraged – we raise our kids to think how great they are, where we have to market ourselves to get through life. We’re in social media, where we broadcast highlight – highlight reels of our own lives on Facebook.
The university and in a general way, all teaching systems, which appear simply to disseminate knowledge, are made to maintain a certain social class in power; and to exclude the instruments of power of another social class.
I think it’s a bit of a myth that black Americans need one leader. We’re not a monolith. And now that legal segregation and discrimination has been pretty much abolished there isn’t the sort of universal mandate that a black leader would have. Black folks live in a wide variety of social situations right now.
Hope is essential to any political struggle for radical change when the overall social climate promotes disillusionment and despair.
You can achieve great economic gains by solving social problems.
A so-called news organization called the Denver Guardian – which, by the way, doesn’t exist – wrote an article and pushed it on social media that said that the pope had endorsed Donald Trump. That’s the perfect definition of fake news. It was intentionally designed to deceive.
A certain number of people seek power over other people in a desperate attempt to find themselves. They fail, for self-discovery is spiritual in nature, not social or political. Authoritatively telling other people what to do is their distraction from an inner emptiness they can never fill.
I think we will begin to see some real efforts made to do things like protecting Social Security and Medicare.
I’m on social media a lot. It kind of revises or revives your career. Because of social media I get pictures and autographs from all over the place. If that wasn’t around, people would wonder, “What’s Frank Stallone up to?” Now they can just got to YouTube and see a million things. It’s quite a bit of fun.
I have long been a critic of Social Security, basically because I believe that it is not the business of government to tell people what fraction of their incomes they should devote to providing for their own or someone else’s old age.
The kids go to a Quaker school. Their father and I believe a lot in community, social responsibility, making sure you give to people less fortunate than you.
An essential point in the social philosophy of interventionism is the existence of an inexhaustible fund which can be squeezed forever. The whole system of interventionism collapses when the fountain is drained off: The Santa Clause principle liquidates itself.
Social media is the devil. Absolute devil. Oh, my God. It’s the worst thing ever.
Each social formation, through each of its material activities, exerts its influence upon the civic whole; and each of its ideas and ideals wins also its place and power.

Social media allows big companies to act small again.
Our social mission as a manufacturer is only realized when products reach, are used by, and satisfy the customer . . . We need to take the customer’s skin temperature daily.
This movie came as a reaction to reality. I realized that I do not know that 80 of the population that lives poor in my city. I wanted to make a social experiment putting in the same car several people from different social classes, just to see what would happen.
We have reached a crossroads in human evolution where the only road which leads forward is towards a common passion. . . To continue to place our hopes in a social order achieved by external violence would simply amount to our giving up all hope of carrying the Spirit of the Earth to its limits.
TV has a lot of problems, but I think the Internet and social media have a lot more. Under the cover of anonymity people say the most vicious things.
Dolphins are social mammals, capable of enjoying their lives. They form close bonds with other members of their group.
There is a social injunction implied in the positivist and analyst methods. This social axiom is that :;:;:;:;:;:; We OUGHT to act in such a way that what IS true can be verified to be so.
How about no income tax at all on people over 65? People would continue working, remain healthier, not be an economic and social drain on society. Then the elderly would also have more disposable income to help charitable activities.
Do we really want the people who created $40 trillion of unfunded liabilities in Social Security and Medicare in charge of our health care? Faceless bureaucrats, power-lusting politicians, and people spending other people’s money are a recipe for disaster.
Online I see people committing ‘social media suicide’ all the time by one of two ways. Firstly by responding to all criticism, meaning you’re never going to find time to complete important milestones of your own, and by responding to things that don’t warrant a response. This lends more credibility by driving traffic.
One was a book I read by Mahatma Gandhi. In it was a passage where he said that religion, the pursuing of the inner journey, should not be separated from the pursuing of the outer and social journey, because we are not isolated beings.
It becomes very difficult for us to adjust to a world without social media because we spend so much time involved with it.
When you have a bad game the social network isn’t exactly your best friend. People tend to go after you a little bit, but I don’t let it bother me.
We don’t have a choice on whether we DO social media, the question is how well we do it.
For me, faith is personal, but the implications are social – as personal and social responsibility are at the heart of the Christian message.
C-68 has little to do with gun control or crime control, but it is the first step necessary to begin the social re-engineering of Canada.
‘Prom’ is a movie that follows a bunch of high-schoolers’ lives leading up to the prom, the climax of the movie. It focuses all their struggles and the social pressures that prom creates on their lives.

Princeton University’s campus environment presents unique challenges and opportunities for architecture to act as a social condenser.
I think, after ‘Let Her Go,’ I wanted to show people that I don’t just write really sad love songs about my ex-girlfriend: that there’s another side to Passenger as well that’s a bit more up-tempo and more inclined to social commentary.
If you are going to do something truly innovative, you have to be someone who does not value social approval. You can’t need social approval to go forward. Otherwise, how would you ever do the thing that you are doing?

I was too old for a paper route, too young for Social Security and too tired for an affair.

blunders of private enterprise Profit is private and individual.
Loss is public and social.

With the passage of time, as well as the social evolution and genetic exchange, we ended up putting our conscience in the color of our blood and the salt of our tears.

Donald Trump was underrated, but he understood social media and he understood reality television.
Politics are not an instrument for effecting social change; they are the art of making the inevitable appear to be a matter of wise human choice.
Only our deep moral values and our strong social institutions can hold back that jungle and restrain the darker impulses of human nature.
But if there is such a thing as social commitment in literature, I think it must manifest itself in a reader’s awareness of the human condition, in the writer’s touching some common nerve ending. I think this kind of social commitment, like a lady’s slip, should be there but it must not show.
We understand hereby, that the family, the business, science, art and so forth are all social spheres, which do not owe their existence to the State, but obey a high authority within their own bosom; an authority which rules, by the grace of God, just as the sovereignty of the State does.
I believe Social Security is unjust. I think it’s wrong. I think it penalizes responsible people. It penalizes the young and it’s a massive redistribution of wealth.
It is place, permanent position in both the social and topographical sense, that gives us our identity.
Social and political issues in general seem to me fairly simple; the effort to obfuscate them in esoteric and generally vacuous theory is one of the contributions of the intelligentsia to enhancing their own power and the power of those they serve.
Social networking is playing a huge role in creating awareness and mobilizing support for all kinds of common interests. What better way to use this remarkable tool than to change the world?
I got tattoos for purely antisocial reasons, and now people do it for social acceptance. I miss the individualism.
I always say ‘The Bachelor’ doesn’t create and drive social issues. We’re a microcosm of what’s happening in the world.
A lawyer is either a social engineer or he is a parasite on society.
The attack on Social Security is similarly motivated. Social Security is based on the conception is that we should have sympathy for others, not function merely as isolated “rational wealth maximizers.”

Nobody seriously believes in the social philosophies of the immediate past.

I’m not afraid of death but I am afraid of dying. Pain can be alleviated by morphine but the pain of social ostracism cannot be taken away.
We can boost our immune systems by strengthening our social networks and decreasing stress.

There is nothing inevitable about crime and there is nothing inevitable about anti-social behaviour.
The physical life of an individual person is limited, but the life of the masses united as an independent social-political organism is immortal. Only when an individual becomes a member of this community can he acquire the immortal social-political life.

There is a process of social and of political differentiation going on in the real working class all the time.
If we had intellectual vigour enough to ascend from effects to causes, we would explain political, economical and social phenomena less by credit sheets, balance of trade and reparations than by our attitude towards God.
Shoot the dictator and prevent the war? But the dictator is merely the tip of the whole festering boil of social pus from which dictators emerge; shoot him and there’ll be another one along in a minute. Shoot him too? Why not shoot everyone and invade Poland?
I think social media really is a great tool. It fascinates me when I tweet something and right away you get a response almost immediately.
People like to talk a lot about me, about how I have anxiety or social disorders. I’ll admit to anxiety, but it has nothing to do with media or being in front of a camera or being around people. It has to do with dealing with the sparring that I’m going to have or the workouts that I’m going to have from day to day.
We need love, and to ensure love, we need to have full employment, and we need social justice. We need gender equity. We need freedom from hunger. These are our most fundamental needs as social creatures.
