Corporate social responsibility is measured in terms of businesses improving conditions for their employees, shareholders, communities, and environment.

Human beings are born solitary, but everywhere they are in chains – daisy chains – of interactivity. Social actions are makeshift forms, often courageous, sometimes ridiculous, always strange.

I’m more comfortable writing traditional protagonists. But ‘Steve Jobs’ and ‘The Social Network’ have antiheroes. I like to write antiheroes as if they’re making their case to God about why they should be allowed into heaven. I have to find something in that character that is like me and write to that.
Making someone laugh is a good way to get their defences down so that they might then be open to new ideas, especially when they’re laughing at some common ground they relate to. Comedy‘s always been an amazing tool for social change.

Allah says in the Qur’an not to despise one another. So the criterion in Islam is not color or social status. It’s who is most righteous.

My interests were more extracurricular, more external, and more social than they were academic. My birthday is also in December, so I was one of the older kids.

I think one of the biggest mistakes that America has made – and maybe the world because this is, sort of, the core of communism and socialism – is that you can have perfect solutions to social problems like poverty, like crime.

There are positive things that come of social media as well as negative.

Human interaction is something that I believe, as humans, we crave for. And that is where bars and social environments come into play.

Television, radio, social media. The 24/7 news cycle plows forward mercilessly on our desks, in our cars and in our pockets.

Social thinking requires very exacting thresholds to be powerful. For example, we’ve had social thinking for 200,000 years, and hardly anything happened that could be considered progress over most of that time.

We’re going to lose Social Security and Medicare if Republicans and Democrats do not come together and find a solution like Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neill. I will be the Ronald Reagan if I can find a Tip O’Neill.
Social media stars are only relevant because they make content, so they can never stop doing that.

New technologies, innovative management, higher productivity, displacements in the labour market, increased migration – these are all provoking major economic, social, and political shifts. These shifts need to be better understood if we are to address them in a positive and effective manner.
I’m not a social butterfly.
Childhood depression tends to be more common in inner cities, being most frequently related to serious social deprivation, bullying, domestic violence, wartime experience and famine. It is, for example, a serious problem among children who are traumatised refugees.
Human beings do not live in the objective world alone, nor alone in the world of social activity as ordinarily understood, but are very much at the mercy of the particular language which has become the medium of expression for their society.

Sport must be the heritage of all men and of all social classes.
Most psychiatrists assume that mental illnesses such as depression are caused by chemical imbalances in the brain, which can be treated by drugs. But most psychotherapy doesn’t address the social causation of mental illness either.

History and social sciences were my interests. I was always interested in knowing how societies get organized, why there is rich and poor divide, why there are classes. I was never apolitical. I think we are all political in a way. Politics decides our day-to-day life.
I call on all the countries of the world, especially the donor countries, to speed up their contributions so that the Palestinian people may overcome their economic and social problems and proceed with reconstruction and the rebuilding of infrastructures.
I hope my work contributes to understanding long-term patterns of human behavior and how we survive, thrive, or fail during times of environmental, social, and economic crisis.

If we really wish to put an end to our ongoing international and social problems we must eventually declare Earth and all of its resources as the common heritage of all the world‘s people.
I believe activism is the true source of change in the world. Pushing to change social structures in communities that you are a part of is critical for making real lasting change.
I use the term ‘disabled people’ quite deliberately, because I subscribe to what’s called the social model of disability, which tells us that we are more disabled by the society that we live in than by our bodies and our diagnoses.
I hate being alone. That’s why I like being with my friends: we’ve got energy; we’re social as hell.
White lies keep social dignity intact and are far more prevalent than most people realize. Several studies have found that an average person is lied to from 10 to 200 times a day – mostly just to keep a conversation going, to avoid conflict, or to establish a connection with someone.
The path of social advancement is, and must be, strewn with broken friendships.
Reality TV to me is the museum of social decay.
I have never felt the constraints of social acceptability.
The stage of the development of the productive forces determines the political and ideological superstructure of society which are crystallized into a system of social organization.
Anyone who knows anything of history knows that great social changes are impossible without feminine upheaval. Social progress can be measured exactly by the social position of the fair sex, the ugly ones included.

Social media can be very effective in creating movements. In the beginning, that is how I first got attention.
I hate whenever there’s a social issue that comes up in golf and people in the mainstream media who hate golf and who’ve conjured up all these stereotypes of people who are in the sport, the way they tear it down… I resent it, and I’ll defend golf and people in golf until my dying day.
The theatre was created to tell people the truth about life and the social situation.
The only way the gender divide affected me was the social things the younger guy executives could do with their bosses. I don’t know what went on in the clubs, because I didn’t go. I made sure my work was stellar, and that compensated for whatever social time we weren’t spending together.
The winner must promote social jusitce, remove corruption and discrmination, and stand against political, cultural and economic plots.
I’m into wellbeing, not because of social pressures to look a certain way, but because I’m interested in living a long, full and healthy life.

Shaquille and I kind of joke we were the Christopher Columbus of social media. We’re kind of out on a boat by ourselves going through these uncharted waters. But it’s become more understood, embraced and accepted, and now it’s pretty much expected by fans for athletes, leagues and teams to be there.
The hardest part of living without social media was remembering that my little life was enough, so I could just stay there and live it without asking for anyone else‘s permission or validation. I realized that for me, posting is like asking the world, ‘Do you ‘like’ me?’
We all have a social responsibility and have to be mindful of what we do and say.
It’s a dialogue, not a monologue, and some people don’t understand that. Social media is more like a telephone than a television.
I have a statement on the Social Security. A lot of people approaching that age have either already retired on pensions or have made irreversible plans to retire very soon… I consider it a breach of faith to renege on that promise. It is a rotten thing to do.
I’m quite a social person, quite a communicator, and I like to have the work of other people around.
Social media websites are no longer performing an envisaged function of creating a positive communication link among friends, family and professionals. It is a veritable battleground, where insults fly from the human quiver, damaging lives, destroying self-esteem and a person’s sense of self-worth.
I have been into social work since 45 years, and at an average, every day for one or two hours, I have been engaging in social discourses. It is not a small thing.
Economists should be modest and be aware that they are part of the broader social science community. We need to be pragmatic about the methods we use. When we need to do history, we should do history. When we need to study political science, we should study political science.
I don’t really have a strategy for social media. I think that’s my strategy is that I don’t have a strategy.

I think there’s a gigantic generation gap in terms of how people understand the Internet and how much they think technology is an important factor in social change.

It takes discipline not to let social media steal your time.
I’m never going to be one of those guys who gets on TV and yells and screams. That’s not how I do my business. But I’m very aware of social responsibility.
We’re all vulnerable to social approval. The need to belong, to be approved or appreciated by our peers is among the highest human motivations. But now our social approval is in the hands of tech companies.
I am for socialism, disarmament, and, ultimately, for abolishing the state itself… I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and the sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.

Every day is a learning experience for city kids, and they are really sort of forced to interact with everyone around them and develop into social beings.
In Chicago, you have an absence of strong family units, and that absence gets filled by gangs.

I feel that it is a social responsibility for us who are better educated to give back some to the society in whatever service we can help.

I’m very hands-on about social media. That’s my voice.

I often ask myself, ‘Why is it that most of the lies come out of Islamic countries, and why is it that most of the social corruptions are in the Middle East and in these Islamic countries?’ The answer is, when you control something, when you suppress something, people try to do it another way.
Extremism can flourish only in an environment where basic governmental social responsibility for the welfare of the people is neglected. Political dictatorship and social hopelessness create the desperation that fuels religious extremism.

I believe in social dislocation and creative trouble.
Social progress can be measured by the social position of the female sex.

Free enterprise capitalism has been the most powerful creative system of social cooperation and human progress ever conceived, but its perception and its role in society have been distorted.
You are loved just for being who you are, just for existing. You don’t have to do anything to earn it. Your shortcomings, your lack of self-esteem, physical perfection, or social and economic success – none of that matters. No one can take this love away from you, and it will always be here.
The first resistance to social change is to say it’s not necessary.

The great thing about social movements is everybody gets to be a part of them.
