Modern Society

Famous quotes containing the words modern and/or society:

    The real accomplishment of modern science and technology consists in taking ordinary men, informing them narrowly and deeply and then, through appropriate organization, arranging to have their knowledge combined with that of other specialized but equally ordinary men. This dispenses with the need for genius. The resulting performance, though less inspiring, is far more predictable.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)

    ...I cannot conceive a more odious society than one where nothing is considered indecent or impious.
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)
