A Quote by Walter Russell on civilization, life, society, and history

No civilization can exist part free and part slave.

..We have never had any other kind of civilization. It has always been that way. There has always been a division of man. There has always been the conqueror and conquered--the master and slave--the ruler and the ruled--the oppressor and the oppressed. There has never been content nor unity. There has been only discontent and disunity.

A Quote by Viktor Schauberger on nature, water, harmony, balance, civilization, mankind, unity, and discord

This civilisation is the work of man, who high-handedly and ignorant of the true workings of Nature, has created a world without meaning or foundation, which now threatens to destroy him, for through his behaviour and his activities, he, who should be her master, has disturbed Natureäs inherent unity.

A Quote by Ludwig von Mises on economy, society, wisdom, and civilization

The body of economic knowledge is an essential element in the structure of human civilization; it is the foundation upon which modern industrialism and all the moral, intellectual, technological, and therapeutical achievements of the last centuries have been built.

A Quote by Dan Simmons on express, thought, genius, civilization, cosmos, word, idea, and human

Gass once wrote: "Language serves not only to express thought but to make possible thoughts which could not exist without it." Here is the essence of mankind's creative genius: not the edifices of civilization nor the bang-flash weapons which can end it, but the words which fertilize new concepts like spermatozoa attacking an ovum. It might be argued that the Siamese twin infants of word/idea are the only contribution the human species can, will, or should make to the raveling cosmos.

A Quote by John Ralston Saul on language, civilization, and obfuscation

One of the signs of a healthy civilization is the existence of a relatively clear language in which everyone can participate in their own way. The sign of a sick civilization is the growth of an obscure closed language that seeks to prevent participation.

THE SUM OF THE WHOLE MATTER IS THIS - OUR CIVILIZATION CANNOT SURVIVE MATERIALLY UNLESS IT BE REDEEMED SPIRITUALLY.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on civilization, curiosity, history, honor, mind, nations, peace, war, and world

History's villains are more easily recognized in retrospect. In an article published in 1935 and reprinted in 1937, Winston Churchill expressed a curious ambivalence towards the German chancellor prior to the outbreak of war: We cannot tell whether Hitler will be the man who will once again let loose upon the world another war in which civilization will irretrievably succumb, or whether he will go down in history as the man who restored honour and peace of mind to the great Germanic nation. . . .
