Quotation Bullet

A society person who is enthusiastic about modern painting or Truman Capote is already half a traitor to his class. It is middle-class people who, quite mistakenly, imagine that a lively pursuit of the latest in reading and painting will advance their status in the world.
~ Mary Mccarthy - [Culture]

Quotation Bullet

Culture is a sham if it is only a sort of Gothic front put on an iron building -- like Tower Bridge -- or a classical front put on a steel frame -- like the Daily Telegraph building in Fleet Street. Culture, if it is to be a real thing and a holy thing, must be the product of what we actually do for a living -- not something added, like sugar on a pill.
~ Eric Gill - [Culture]

Quotation Bullet

Culture is one thing and varnish is another.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson - [Culture]

Culture is the habit of being pleased with the best and knowing why.
~ Henry Van Dyke - [Culture]

Culture is the name for what people are interested in, their thoughts, their models, the books they read and the speeches they hear, their table-talk, gossip, controversies, historical sense and scientific training, the values they appreciate, the quality of life they admire. All communities have a culture. It is the climate of their civilization.
~ Walter Lippmann - [Culture]

Quotation Bullet

Culture is the tacit agreement to let the means of subsistence disappear behind the purpose of existence. Civilization is the subordination of the latter to the former.
~ Karl Kraus - [Culture]

Quotation Bullet

Culture of the mind must be subservient to the heart.
~ Mahatma Gandhi - [Culture]

Quotation Bullet

Eclecticism is the degree zero of contemporary general culture: one listens to reggae, watches a western, eats McDonald's food for lunch and local cuisine for dinner, wears Paris perfume in Tokyo and ''retro'' clothes in Hong Kong; knowledge is a matter for TV games. It is easy to find a public for eclectic works.
~ Jean Frantois Lyotard - [Culture]

Quotation Bullet

High culture is nothing but a child of that European perversion called history, the obsession we have with going forward, with considering the sequence of generations a relay race in which everyone surpasses his predecessor, only to be surpassed by his successor. Without this relay race called history there would be no European art and what characterizes it: a longing for originality, a longing for change. Robespierre, Napoleon, Beethoven, Stalin, Picasso, they're all runners in the relay race, they all belong to the same stadium.
~ Milan Kundera - [Culture]

Quotation Bullet

If mass communications blend together harmoniously, and often unnoticeably, art, politics, religion, and philosophy with commercials, they bring these realms of culture to their common denominator -- the commodity form. The music of the soul is also the music of salesmanship. Exchange value, not truth value, counts.
~ Herbert Marcuse - [Culture]
