Civilized Quotations

The discovery of agriculture was the first big step toward a civilized life.
Arthur Keith

John Stuart Mill

No matter how civilized we are and how much society has curbed violent behavior. Human beings still have the same genes they had 10,000 years ago. Our bodies are designed to have a certain amount of physical stress and violence in them. We're designed to run from jaguars and fight to defend our territory.
Joe Rogan

Lascelles Abercrombie

A civilized society is one which tolerates eccentricity to the point of doubtful sanity.
Robert Frost
