Famous quotes containing the words business and, society and/or business:

    I think that New York is not the cultural center of America, but the business and administrative center of American culture.
    Saul Bellow (b. 1915)

    What I call middle-class society is any society that becomes rigidified in predetermined forms, forbidding all evolution, all gains, all progress, all discovery. I call middle-class a closed society in which life has no taste, in which the air is tainted, in which ideas and men are corrupt. And I think that a man who takes a stand against this death is in a sense a revolutionary.
    Frantz Fanon (1925–1961)

    The sun was shining on the sea,
    Shining with all his might:
    He did his very best to make
    The billows smooth and bright—
    And this was odd, because it was
    The middle of the night.
    The moon was shining sulkily,
    Because she thought the sun
    Had got no business to be there
    After the day was done—
    “It’s very rude of him,” she said,
    “To come and spoil the fun!”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
