A Quote by Albert Camus on creation, culture, freedom, future, gifts, relatives, and society

Without culture, and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect, is but a jungle. This is why any authentic creation is a gift to the future.

Albert Camus (1913 - 1960)

A Quote by Alan Cross on aristocracy, culture, destruction, evolution, and theory

There is a theory of societal evolution that goes like this: Barbarians invent a new culture. A middle class emerges to manage and help perpetuate the culture. An aristocracy eventually develops out of the middle class and devotes their energies to making things comfortable for themselves. Finally, a new set of barbarians smash everything apart and destroy the status quo so that the process must start all over again.

A Quote by Abraham Cowley on culture, dedication, desires, garden, life, nature, and study

I never had any other desire so strong, and so like covetousness, as that . . . I might be master at last of a small house and a large garden, with very moderate conveniences joined to them, and there dedicate the remainder of my life to the culture of them and the study of nature.

Abraham Cowley (1618 - 1667)

A Quote by A. H. R. Fairchild on ability, culture, day, feeling, ideas, judgment, life, mind, problems, questions, and sympathy

The most distinctive mark of a cultured mind is the ability to take another's point of view; to put one's self in another's place, and see life and its problems from a point of view different from one's own. To be willing to test a new idea; to be able to live on the edge of difference in all matters intellectually; to examine without heat the burning question of the day; to have imaginative sympathy, openness and flexibility of mind, steadiness and poise of feeling, cool calmness of judgment, is to have culture.
