Peter L. Berger Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Peter L. Berger from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Let me say again that the relationship is asymmetrical:
there's no democracy without a market economy,
but you can have a market economy without democracy.
- Peter L. Berger

But we don't have an example of a democratic society
existing in a socialist economy -
which is the only real alternative to capitalism in the modern world.
- Peter L. Berger

The problem with liberal Protestantism in America is
not that it has not been orthodox enough,
but that it has lost a lot of religious substance.
- Peter L. Berger

Even if one is interested only in one's own society,
which is one's prerogative, one can understand that
society much better by comparing it with others.
- Peter L. Berger

 

We also have a cultural phenomenon: the emergence of a global culture,
or of cultural globalization.
- Peter L. Berger

In a market economy, however, the individual has some
possibility of escaping from the power of the state.
- Peter L. Berger

So I think one can say on empirical grounds -
not because of some philosophical principle -
that you can't have democracy unless you have a market economy.
- Peter L. Berger

If the cultural elite has its way, the U.S.
will be much more like Europe.
- Peter L. Berger

Even in a society as tightly controlled as Singapore's,
the market creates certain forces which perhaps in
the long run may lead to democracy.
- Peter L. Berger

The negative side to globalization is that it wipes
out entire economic systems and in doing so wipes out
the accompanying culture.
- Peter L. Berger

Some people think that as the Chinese economy becomes
more and more capitalistic it will inevitably become more democratic.
- Peter L. Berger

One can't understand the Christian Right and similar
movements unless one sees them as reactive -
they're reacting to what they call secular humanism.
- Peter L. Berger

I'm sure Putnam is right that there's been a decline
in certain kinds of organizations like bowling leagues.
But people participate in communities in other ways.
- Peter L. Berger

If you say simply that pressures toward democracy are created by the market,
I would say yes.
- Peter L. Berger

When certain branches of the economy become obsolete,
as in the case of the steel industry,
not only do jobs disappear, which is obviously a terrible social hardship,
but certain cultures also disappear.
- Peter L. Berger

Some people seem to gravitate from one fundamentalism to another,
from some kind of secular fundamentalism into a religious
fundamentalism or the other way around,
which is not very helpful.
- Peter L. Berger

It has been true in Western societies and it seems
to be true elsewhere that you do not find democratic
systems apart from capitalism,
or apart from a market economy, if you prefer that term.
- Peter L. Berger

I think what I and most other sociologists of religion
wrote in the 1960s about secularization was a mistake.
Our underlying argument was that secularization and
modernity go hand in hand.
With more modernization comes more secularization.
- Peter L. Berger

The basic fault lines today are not between people
with different beliefs but between people who hold
these beliefs with an element of uncertainty and people
who hold these beliefs with a pretense of certitude.
- Peter L. Berger

Our institute's agenda is relatively simple.
We study the relationship between social-economic change and culture.
By culture we mean beliefs, values and lifestyles.
We cover a broad range of issues, and we work very internationally.
- Peter L. Berger

There is a continuum of values between the churches
and the general community.
What distinguishes the handling of these values in
the churches is mainly the heavier dosage of religious vocabulary involved.
- Peter L. Berger

- Marilyn Monroe

The answers that you are content to not know.

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life
I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei

Never Let Anyone Get Your Goat,
Push Your Buttons,
Get You Riled Up,
or Annoy You.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

If there is anything that a man can do well,
I say let him do it. Give him a chance.

of the rest of your life,
but especially let today be a new beginning.

We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled.
The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over
and let the beautiful stuff out.

Life is lived in the mists -
little is fully visible, less is certain.
Yet rejoice in the unknowing,
and let all of life be a wonderful adventure.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
