Modernity Quotations

Modernity is the transient, the fleeting, the contingent; it is one half of art, the other being the eternal and the immovable.
Charles Baudelaire

A hostility to modernity is shared by ideologies that have nothing else in common - a nostalgia for moral clarity, small-town intimacy, family values, primitive communism, ecological sustainability, communitarian solidarity, or harmonies with the rhythms of nature.
Steven Pinker

The challenge of modernity is to live without illusions and without becoming disillusioned.
Antonio Gramsci

The modernity of yesterday is the tradition of today, and the modernity of today will be tradition tomorrow.
Jose Andres Puerta

Maybe this is just me, but as time goes by, I'm more bewildered by modernity. It gets more unfathomable with every passing year.
Dylan Moran
