American cultural anthropologist, who was frequently a featured writer and speaker in the mass media throughout the 1960s and 1970s.
The natives are superficially agreeable, but they go in for cannibalism, headhunting, infanticide, incest, avoidance and joking relationships, and biting lice in half with their teethMore Margaret Mead quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
where families suffer from disasters that are preventable, this is a measure of a whole nation's neglect. A society imperils its own future when, out of negligence or contempt, it overlooks the need of children to be reared in a family ... or when, in the midst of plenty, some families cannot give their children adequate food and shelter, safe activity and rest, and an opportunity to grow into full adulthood as people who can care for and cherish other human beings like themselves.More Margaret Mead quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I did not write it [Coming of Age in Samoa] as a popular book, but only with the hope that it would be intelligible to those who might make the best use of its theme, that adolescence need not be the time of stress and strain which Western society made it; that growing up could be freer and easier and less complicated; and also that there were prices to pay for the very lack of complication I found in Samoa - less intensity, less individuality, less involvement with life.More Margaret Mead quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I was brought up to believe that the only thing worth doing was to add to the sum of accurate information in the world.More Margaret Mead quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Blackberry winter, the time when the hoarforst lies on the blackberry blossoms; without this frost the berries will not set. It is the forerunner of a rich harvest.More Margaret Mead quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
