Famous quotes containing the word culture:

    When a culture feels that its end has come, it sends for a priest.
    Karl Kraus (1874–1936)

    Popular culture is seductive; high culture is imperious.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    The white dominant culture seemed to think that once the Indians were off the reservations, they’d eventually become like everybody else. But they aren’t like everybody else. When the Indianness is drummed out of them, they are turned into hopeless drunks on skid row.
    Elizabeth Morris (b. c. 1933)
