AZQCueU2 ~ Society

I have been tagged by Jim for this game on quotes started by Rory. The topic is society. It is being played alphabetically. Each person has to post a quote on society by a person whose second name begins with the letter assigned to them. You can check out more details here.

Rory took the letter A

Unlike a drop of water which loses its identity when it joins the ocean,
man does not lose his being in the society in which he lives.
Man’s life is independent.
He is born not for the development of the society alone, but for the development of his self too.”

Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar

Paula took B

“The paradox of education is precisely this – that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.” ~ James Baldwin

King Ben’s Grandma took C

“To me, the progress of society consists in nothing more than in bringing out the individual, in giving him a consciousness of his own being, and in quickening him to strengthen and elevate his own mind.”

WILLIAM E. CHANNING, Thoughts

Beckie took D

“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.”

~ Frederick Douglass

Sadje took E

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
― Albert Einstein

Li took F

“It’s a very difficult era in which to be a person, just a real, actual person, instead of a collection of personality traits selected from an endless Automat of characters.”— Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

Jim took G

In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.” — Galileo

My quote with H

Racism is taught in our society, it is not automatic. It is learned behavior toward persons with dissimilar physical characteristics.” — Alex Haley

I tag Fandango for the letter I.
