Read through the most famous quotes by topic #sociology

For the canons of good society are, or should be, the same as the canons of art. Form is absolutely essential to it.

Oscar Wilde


We don’t live in a world that suffers from doubt, but one that suffers from certainty, false certainties that compensate for the well of worldly anxieties and worries.

Les Back

As a general rule...people ask for advice only in order not to follow it; or if they do follow it, in order to have someone to blame for giving it.

Alexandre Dumas

…sense of futility that comes from doing anything merely to prove to yourself that you can do it: having a child, climbing a mountain, making some sexual conquest, committing suicide. The marathon is a form of demonstrative suicide, suicide as advertising: it is running to show you are capable of getting every last drop of energy out of yourself, to prove it… to prove what? That you are capable of finishing. Graffiti carry the same message. They simply say: I’m so-and-so and I exist! They are free publicity for existence. Do we continually have to prove to ourselves that we exist? A strange sign of weakness, harbinger of a new fanaticism for a faceless performance, endlessly self-evident.

Jean Baudrillard

Pity is cruel. Pity destroys.

كل انسان تستطيع ان تعذره لو نظرت الى الامور بنفس المنظار الذي ينظر اليه به

Argumentation is a human enterprise that is embedded in a larger social and psychological context. This context includes (1) the total psyches of the two persons engaged in dialogue, (2) the relationship between the two persons, (3) the immediate situation in which they find themselves and (4) the larger social, cultural and historical situation surrounding them.

England is the most class-ridden country under the sun. It is a land of snobbery and privilege, ruled largely by the old and silly.

George Orwell

من الواجب على الاباء ان يراقبوا ابنائهم بدقة اثناء نموهم حتى يكتشفوا المجال الذي يصلح لهم ويصلحون له فيساعدونهم فيه
