Being socially responsible is one of Gucci‘s core values, and we will continue to strive to do better for the environment and animals.
There are two Tory parties: the trendy, socially liberal Notting Hill set which dominates at the national level, and the unreconstructed, reactionary, and often bigoted members of Conservative associations at the local level. The latter have yet to reconcile themselves to the reality of modern, multiracial Britain.
The primary goal is to entertain people because… Fortunately, the kind of movies I have been doing have a certain message, they break taboos, and they are socially relevant. So it’s a great mix of content and entertainment.
I swing both ways. I can see things from a kind of conservative point of view and from a more socially liberal or left-wing point of view.

Husbands, recognize your wife‘s intelligence and her ability to counsel with you as a real partner regarding family plans, family activities, and family budgeting.

Just because you can leap off a drum kit doing a scissors kick while hitting a chord, people expect you to be an extrovert socially. But I’m not always comfortable with the idea of small talk at a party.
It’s nice to go back and look at the original version of Cyborg in the 1980s, when he was created, and seeing how politically and socially charged they were: it was no holds barred. If DC ever made a return to that social awareness and that sort of context, I’d be super-thrilled to see that.
There was a time that I would have carried a briefcase and worn a monocle were it to even border on socially acceptable.
There’s no socially acceptable middle age.
I see it as this: I send my kids to school not only to learn how to read and write and do math, but also to develop socially. So if there’s a negative interaction between my child and another child, what I want to know is, how was it handled, what lessons came out of it, and, of course, is my child okay?
I am not popular socially. I am uncomfortable around people.
I knew Billy Wilder socially and would have loved to work with him.

I think we’re always doing something for teenagers and youngsters because BTS originally performed itself as a socially conscious band. We always wanted to sell our performances like we did with our debut.
Like in ‘Eastenders’ they can write coronavirus into the scripts, so people can actually be socially distancing. But if you’re in a sketch show where you’re on top of each other, doing stupid things, you can’t really make it work.
I don’t think I am doing any injustice to my fans by not being accessible socially.
There was a sea of change in comedy in the late 1950s and ’60s. We were dealing with vignettes as opposed to jokes. We were more socially aware.
When an introvert is quiet, don’t assume he is depressed, snobbish or socially deficient.
A lot of people like the idea of companies being socially involved in their community, but if you want big companies to get involved in social issues, what makes you think they’re going to come down on your side?
In my experience, scientists are not always the most socially adjusted people, and may have habits and fascinations outside of their work that others might consider odd.

Even people that are close to me or people that are acq

Even people that are close to me or people that are acquaintances… The only question I get now is, ‘How is music going?’ It’s an overpowering quality of my life now, the fact that I write songs. It’s weird to navigate what that means socially.
I wasn’t really the most charming person, socially – it took me a long time to develop my people skills – but the one place I was always comfortable was onstage, acting or singing.
It is no longer socially permissible to use race, explicitly, as a justification for discrimination, exclusion, and social contempt. So we don’t. Rather than rely on race, we use our criminal justice system to label people of color ‘criminals’ and then engage in all the practices we supposedly left behind.
Novelists in particular love to rhapsodize about the glory of the solitary mind; this is natural, because their job requires them to sit in a room by themselves for years on end. But for most of the rest of us, we think and remember socially.
People don’t mind insulting the tall. We’re supposed to be fine with being awkward and skinny. I’m very easy to psychoanalyse. I was a gangly, awkward teenager who could make people laugh and thought that was a way to be socially more comfortable.
People may have found it difficult to approach me, and I realised it and have worked on it. I used to be socially shy. Now I have become a social animal. I go out, meet and interact with people.
Since 1990, we have been building up the idea that democracy is the best way for sectors that feel socially excluded from politics to win power.
It is true that some liberals and humanists, along with the laid-back Danes, deny the existence of evil. This is largely because they regard the word ‘evil’ as a device for demonising those who are really nothing more than socially unfortunate.
It seems to be that southern Europeans are just more intimate socially, whereas I like a lot of personal space – like, a mile from the nearest person is fine for me.

George Bush is by American standards rabidly Upper Class – Eastern, Socially Attractive, WASP, 19th-century money, several generations of Andover and Yale (and, while we’re at it, his father, George H. W. ‘Poppy‘ Bush, was a former president and his grandfather was the Nazis’ U.S. banker in the 1930s).
Our relationship to the computer is much like our relationship to the car: rich, complex, socially messy.
I don’t perform well in private. Socially, I mean. And I didn’t as a child. Actors aren’t necessarily outgoing, are they?
Blackness better defines who I am philosophically and socially than whiteness does.
Meat workers may have been looked down upon socially, but at least they were well-paid and were a fit and lively bunch as a result of hard, honest physical work.
No matter what road I take, I can never get too far away from the conscious lyric and the socially conscious content.
In terms of the most unique thing we do socially, my vote goes to something we invented alongside cities – we have lots of anonymous interactions and interactions with strangers. That has shaped us enormously.

George W. Romney

I was a socially awkward 8-year-old kid who fell in love with wrestling when he felt like the whole world was against him. That’s the key word: love. I don’t do this for revenge; I do this because I love it. That’s Johnny Wrestling.
Would that there were an award for people who come to understand the concept of enough. Good enough. Successful enough. Thin enough. Rich enough. Socially responsible enough. When you have self-respect, you have enough.
A person with grace is somebody who’s socially graceful or is a classy person, but sometimes you just feel the opposite of that, and you just feel like a jerk and a loser and a weirdo.
Matt Berninger
Personally speaking, growing up as a gay man before it

Personally speaking, growing up as a gay man before it was as socially acceptable as it is now, I knew what it was to feel different, to feel alienated and to feel not like everyone else. But the very same thing that made me monstrous to some people also empowered me and made me who I was.
I don’t think anything can help me socially, to be honest: I have this terrible personality. I don’t really know how to describe it… maybe I’ll go with surly.

I think temptation is ever present to become something that you think is more socially acceptable.

I am someone who pays attention to the currents that are going on socially in terms of what people want. When I catch wind of the types of matches people want, those are the matches I want, too.
Karrion Kross

Rula Ghani
I was thrust into an adult world very quickly, and that can make anyone somewhat socially maladjusted to dealing with people your own age. But I wouldn’t trade any of it.
I’m definitely on the spectrum of socially awkward.
I’m so socially awkward. I really had to put myself out there and meet new people.
