Famous quotes containing the words life and/or culture:

    “You are old, Father William,” the young man cried,
    “And life must be hastening away;
    You are cheerful, and love to converse upon death:
    Now tell me the reason, I pray.”

    “I am cheerful, young man,” Father William replied;
    “Let the cause thy attention engage;
    In the days of my youth I remembered my God,
    And He hath not forgotten my age.”
    Robert Southey (1774–1843)

    The second fundamental feature of culture is that all culture has an element of striving.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)
