modernity

The critical method which denies literary modernity would appear -- and even, in certain respects, would be -- the most modern of critical movements.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It's really great to be back after all this time. I have very nice memories because I was the first female player to win the title here (in 2001). Hopefully these memories will inspire me and it will be a good week for me in this great event. I was always impressed with the modernity of Dubai and all that it has to offer.More [03/18/2006 12:03:00]
When I decided to get married at 40, I couldn't find a dress with the modernity or sophistication I wanted. That's when I saw the opportunity for a wedding gown business.More [07/16/2011 06:07:41]
Democracy, good governance and modernity cannot be imported or imposed from outside a country.More [07/29/2011 04:07:55]

I really enjoyed 'Casino Royale' because suddenly something changed with this modernity and with Daniel bringing life to James Bond in a very new way.More [09/16/2013 06:09:15]
My purpose is to make a movie to make you warm. To give you some heat. Now, this rational world has become a place where only what is cool is good. Do you cut the movie on the basis of the beat of modernity or the basis of the beat of your own heart?More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
All theory of modernity in sociology suggests that the more modernity there is, the less religion. In my theory we can realize that this is wrong: atheism is only one belief system among many.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The basic assumption of the secular society is that modernity overcomes religion.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Modernity, the child of the Enlightenment, failed when it became apparent that the good society cannot be achieved by unaided reason.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
There must have been great yearning and repression in Mohamed Atta's life; it is the torment of Atta's generation. They were placed perilously close to modernity, but they could not partake of it.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Today when we say the West we are already referring to the West and to Russia. We could use the word "modernity" if we exclude Africa, and the Islamic world, and partially China.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If they analyze the situation as thoroughly as they should, Muslims will realize they are the first targets. What are the fundamentalists really after? Simply taking over Islam and then turning its back on modernity.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The challenge of modernity is to live without illusions and without becoming disillusioned.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Few understand that procrastination is our natural defense, letting things take care of themselves and exercise their antifragility; it results from some ecological or naturalistic wisdom, and is not always bad -- at an existential level, it is my body rebelling against its entrapment. It is my soul fighting the Procrustean bed of modernity.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Modernity is the transient, the fleeting, the contingent; it is one half of art, the other being the eternal and the immovable.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Modernity is the transitory, the fugitive, the contingent, which make up one half of art, the other being the eternal and the immutable. This transitory fugitive element, which is constantly changing, must not be despised or neglected.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All theory of modernity in sociology suggests that the more modernity there is, the less religion. In my theory we can realize that this is wrong: atheism is only one belief system among many.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

America's vulnerability comes precisely from its strength, its wealth, its power and its modernity. It's the usual story of the dog chasing its own tail.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What has been cut apart cannot be glued back together. Abandon all hope of totality, future as well as past, you who enter the world of fluid modernity.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When I decided to get married at 40, I couldn't find a dress with the modernity or sophistication I wanted. That's when I saw the opportunity for a wedding gown business.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If one looks at the works of Newton to Einstein, they were never scientists in the way modernity understands the term.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Maybe this is just me, but as time goes by, I'm more bewildered by modernity. It gets more unfathomable with every passing year.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is ironic to watch the churches, including large sections of my own religion, surrendering to the spirit of modernity at the very moment when modernity itself is undergoing a kind of spiritual collapse....More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Modernity is the most transient of qualities.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The conservative response to modernity is to embrace it, but to embrace it critically, in full consciousness that human achievements are rare and precarious, that we have no God-given right to destroy our inheritance, but must always patiently submit to the voice of order, and set an example of orderly living.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Religion and modernity are not necessarily mutually exclusive.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Contemporary architects tend to impose modernity on something. There is a certain concern for history but it’s not very deep. I understand that time has changed, we have evolved. But I don’t want to forget the beginning. A lasting architecture has to have roots.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What modernity requires is not that you cease living according to your faith, but that you accept that others may differ and that therefore politics requires a form of discourse that is reasonable and accessible to believer and non-believer alike. This religious restraint in politics is critical to the maintenance of liberal democracy.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I like the pluralism of modernity; it doesn't threaten me or my faith. And if one's faith is dependent on being reinforced in every aspect of other people's lives, then it is a rather insecure faith, don't you think?More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Modernity needs to understand that being rich and becoming rich are not mathematically, personally, socially, and ethically the same thing.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Modernity widened the distance between the sensational and the relevant.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have respect for mother nature's methods of robustness (billions of years allow most of what is fragile to break); classical thought is more robust (in its respect for the unknown, the epistemic humility) than the modern post-Enlightenment naïve pseudoscientific autism. Thus my classical values make me advocate the triplet of erudition, elegance, and courage; against modernity's phoniness, nerdiness and philistinismMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The essential of a real picture is that the things which occur in it occur to him in his peculiarly personal fashion.. ..the idea of modernity is but a new attachment of things universal - a fresh relationship to the courses of the sun and to the living swing of the earth - a new fire of affection for the living essence present everywhere.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Animism is worth considering (a) because it exists, (b) because it addresses contemporary issues and debates, and (c) because it clarifies, in various ways, the argument that the project of modernity is ill-conceived and dangerously performed.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Animism is far from primitive, nor is it about pre-modernity because animism does not serve as a precursor to modernity. Rather animism is one of the many vitally present and contemporary other-than-modern ways of being human.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My purpose is to make a movie to make you warm. To give you some heat. Now, this rational world has become a place where only what is cool is good. Do you cut the movie on the basis of the beat of modernity or the basis of the beat of your own heart?More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The developed world should neither shelter nor militarily destabilize authoritarian regimes unless those regimes represent an imminent threat to the national security of other states. Developed states should instead work to create the conditions most favorable for a closed regime's safe passage through the least stable segment of the J curve however and whenever the slide toward instability comes. And developed states should minimize the risk these states pose the rest of the world as their transition toward modernity More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The visual possibility of seeing the historical person (as opposed to the eternal Qur'anic man) on screen is arguably the single most important event allowing Iranians access to modernity.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Modernity exists in the form of a desire to wipe out whatever came earlier, in the hope of reaching at least a point that could be called a true present, a point of origin that marks a new departure.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is obvious that all sense has gone out of modern marriage; which is, however, no objection to marriage but to modernity.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Is this the curse of modernity, to live in a world without judgment, without perspective, no context for understanding or distinguishing what is real and what is imagined, what is manipulated and what is by chance beautiful, what is shadow and what is flesh?More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For members of a traditional society where many traditions have been discredited, an interest in modernity can result in a restless sophistication. Mehmet Ertegun seems not to have been a restless man.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nothing is born of nothing, least of all knowledge, modernity, or enlightened thought; progress is made in tiny surges, in successive laps, like an endless relay race. But there are links without which nothing would be passed on, and for that reason, they deserve the gratitude of all who benefited from them.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As countries grapple with modernization, people who are left behind tend to hold firmer and firmer to their view of the evil of modernity.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One of those blocks (that prevent the 'Middle East from entering the mainstream of modernity') is the orthodox tenet that the Koran and the scriptures contain all the knowledge required to deal with the problems of contemporary society.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You don't really need modernity in order to exist totally and fully. You need a mixture of modernity and tradition.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is something about Prince William and Prince Harry that brings real modernity to the British royal family. They are also very open, human, and kind, and this is what I have tried to capture in the pictures I have taken of them as well as in my pictures of Prince William and Catherine.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nothing grows old-fashioned so fast as modernity.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We are called to see that the Church does not adapt its thinking to the horizons that modernity prescribes for it but rather that it brings to those horizons the powerful antidote of God's truth. It is not the Word of God but rather modernity that stands in need of being demythologised.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
... If Islam is to be reconciled with modernity, these voices must be encouraged until they swell into a roar. Many of them speak of another Islam, their personal, private faith. The restoration of religion to the sphere of the personal, its depoliticization, is the nettle that all Muslim societies must grasp in order to become modern.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And yet, unless my senses deceive me, the old centuries had, and have, powers of their own which mere 'modernity' cannot kill.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
America was born modern; it did not have to achieve modernity, nor did it have modernity thrust upon it.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Abortion is without a doubt one of the greatest moral evils within modernity. As the "Advocate of Christian Memory," a pope must take up the mantle of defending the culture of life - a defense the Early Church held against the pagans of Rome.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
America is the original version of modernity. We are the dubbed or subtitled version. America ducks the question of origins; it cultivates no origin or mythical authenticity; it has no past and no founding truth. Having known no primitive accumulation of time, it lives in a perpetual present.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
