Famous quotes containing the word cultural:

    Barbarisation may be defined as a cultural process whereby an attained condition of high value is gradually overrun and superseded by elements of lower quality.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    Unfortunately there is still a cultural stereotype that it’s all right for girls to be affectionate but that once boys reach six or seven, they no longer need so much hugging and kissing. What this does is dissuade boys from expressing their natural feelings of tenderness and affection. It is important that we act affectionately with our sons as well as our daughters.
    Stephanie Martson (20th century)

    The beginning of Canadian cultural nationalism was not “Am I really that oppressed?” but “Am I really that boring?”
    Margaret Atwood (b. 1939)
