### Famous quotes containing the words society and/or mathematical:

“In communist *society*, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, *society* regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticize after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic.”

—Karl Marx (1818–1883)

“The circumstances of human society are too complicated to be submitted to the rigour of *mathematical* calculation.”

—Marquis De Custine (1790–1857)
