Famous quotes containing the words clifford and/or geertz:

    Time engraves our faces with all the tears we have not shed.
    —Natalie Clifford Barney (1876–1972)

    To see ourselves as others see us can be eye-opening. To see others as sharing a nature with ourselves is the merest decency. But it is from the far more difficult achievement of seeing ourselves amongst others, as a local example of the forms human life has locally taken, a case among cases, a world among worlds, that the largeness of mind, without which objectivity is self- congratulation and tolerance a sham, comes.
    —Clifford Geertz (b. 1926)
