 :: 10 Quotes of the Moment

Quotation Bullet

All civilization has from time to time become a thin crust over a volcano of revolution.
~ Havelock Ellis - [Civilization]

Quotation Bullet

As long as our civilization is essentially one of property, of fences, of exclusiveness, it will be mocked by delusions. Our riches will leave us sick; there will be bitterness in our laughter; and our wine will burn our mouth. Only that good profits, which we can taste with all doors open, and which serves all men.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson - [Civilization]

Quotation Bullet

Civilization depends on morality.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson - [Civilization]

Quotation Bullet

Civilization is a process in the service of Eros, whose purpose is to combine single human individuals, and after that families, then races, peoples and nations, into one great unity, the unity of mankind. Why this has to happen, we do not know; the work of Eros is precisely this.
~ Sigmund Freud - [Civilization]

Quotation Bullet

Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing the things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry and even whittle statues. The story of civilization is the story of what happened on the banks. Historians are pessimists because they ignore the banks for the river.
~ William J. Durant - [Civilization]

Quotation Bullet

Civilization is an active deposit which is formed by the combustion of the present with the past. Neither in countries without a Present nor in those without a Past is it to be encountered. Proust in Venice, Matisse's birdcages overlooking the flower market at Nice, Gide on the seventeenth-century quais of Toulon, Lorca in Granada, Picasso by Saint-Germain-des-PrTs: there lies civilization and for me it can exist only under those liberal regimes in which the Present is alive and therefore capable of assimilating the Past.
~ Cyril Connolly - [Civilization]

Quotation Bullet

Civilization is the lamb's skin in which barbarism masquerades.
~ Thomas B. Aldrich - [Civilization]

Quotation Bullet

Curiosity doesn't matter any more. These days people don't want to be transported to emotional territories where they don't know how to react.
~ Hector Babenko - [Cinema]

Quotation Bullet

Each new generation is a fresh invasion of savages.
~ Hervey Allen - [Civilization]

Quotation Bullet

Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.
~ Ingmar Bergman - [Cinema]
