Being civilized means you’re missing out on the simple life of everyday stuff. You do everything in a hurry to perform. You miss the roses, birds and beauty along the way

My wife is doing a damn fine job of civilizing me. I’ve still got a long way to go, but I can now be accepted in polite company for short periods of time. We’ve now got a daughter and I can have fun making it difficult for her all over again :D

civilize is just a word that lead us to remember the importance that humanity has in this world. Every person has the commitment to be part of each one action and help each other with consequences.

I thought that the people living next door was civilize. I was so wrong. the signs were there but we did not see them in time. our lives were in danger from the first day that they entered our village. We learned later that they were responsible for the killing of a family in there home town.

There can be no denying we have become more civilized as a race, as a people, as humanity.
Our medicine has improved dramatically over the last two centuries, almost even to the level of our impressive homicide and self-destruction.
Our politics have become a level playing field, even if it is because nobody trusts anybody.
The classes soon will meet in the middle as our money transcends value, if you can excuse the fact that it’s the ignorance and greed of the bankers who are taking more and making it worth less.
Yes, all those dreams of equality are finally reaching realisation; albeit the realisation that it’s not quite what we meant from the start…

Is the explotative side of the porn industry a part of civilized culture?
What about reality shows?
Or religions where people sanction hate, discrimination, and violence?
Or people going broke from medical bills where the hospital gives them the cheapest care they can for the highest price possible?
How about the difference in quality of education within a 10 mile radius in a city where one neighborhood is poor and the other wealthy?
Is this what it means to civilize the savages?

Civilize me? Why would anyone want to do that? I am the gentle sea breeze ruffling your hair. I am a kiss on the cheek, a caress down your arm. Why would you want to take away what I am?
By Nadine Ducca URL on 10.17.2012
there’s nothing to be proud about. dreams of worlds, where our ideals a present, where we don’t need to pursuit freedom, liberty, peace and justice anymore, do not justify our current existence.

You try to civilize me
but I will not have it
I don’t want to remember
how to walk the concrete paths
or follow your rules of the road
I just want to walk for days
to stare at the stars and dream
to forget that I am attached to the world
without forgetting that the world is attached to me

The world used to be a very civilized and free world. Everything used to be so free and easy. Even money. But now, it’s a total different story. We are living in a very corrupted and selfish world. Where’s the love and peace?

It was brutal, how he did it. He cut me to the core. But he did it very politely. There was no yelling, no teasing, no mocking humiliating slurs thrown. Just a few simple words, delivered in a whisper- “Let’s just be friends.”

My stance on existence, is that humanity is like a fish, swimming in a bowl. We cannot know the afterlife, the meaning of our existence, the truth of reality, for everything is distorted by our little, glass bowl. We swim, we live. The only true way to see beyond, to understand our lives meaning, is to escape the bowl, and die.

It is important to act in a civil manner among peers. When one acts as ORoma did last night challenges can occur which impede our youth in being civilized. A civil person follows conventions of behavior and etiquette. These are social moirees. A civil person does not need to use foul language as they have a stronger education and mind. The Snickers guy from 3 mile island comes to mind.
We continually pride ourselves on our advancements in technology and innovation- what we have always failed to recognize in our ethnocentric imperialistic view is that the cultures that remain close to nature and connected to the interconnectedness of it all, would out live and outlast us all if power stations failed and we were left to rely on our senses.
By Laura Mary URL on 10.17.2012
i really don’t have a lot of feelings towards this word. I feel like, we’re almost beyond civilize. I think we more need to just be civil in general. I guess that would go towards civilize but at first glance that’s not what comes to mind. I think like savages and colonization and forced culture. When in reality I want to just think that maybe we could alld o with a little more civility in general. that would be a better way to see it i feel.

Ever since man was put on this Earth, we have done our best to civilize ourselves and create a thriving environment. Some have succeeded many have failed.

Civilize – I wish we could all civilize. We treat each other like savages and yet we pretend to be a civilization. There is no civility. none. We bully, we taunt, we scream in our own minds horrid thoughts,

europeans came over to the us and tried to civilize the native americans. but they went about it the wroung way. couldnt they just have negotiated and kept the peace? did they have to murder people just so they could have more land?

civilize means something that is civil or the act of being civil, to civilize is to make something civil.
When the rain drops
I will be civil
I will care about everything
When i die i will be civil
I will go into the night
Without a fight.
By Jamie URL on 10.17.2012
civilized means you have manners and know how to keep calm in a bad situation. For example when your in a argument some one may say “lets all act like civilized adults” which means to be calm and talk it out.

Sadjawa stared; horrified. The trees were gone, dirt took over grass, and smoke took over blue mountain air. The strange men had said that they would only attempt to “civilize” the land of the Shawnee. Sadjawa willed her face to become as if she was made of iron. The white men would not take away her pride… even if they took away her land. Tears of pain welled up inside of her, while outwardly, human had taken the face of a stone.
Kankayree blinked. Sadjawa had become stiff and angry. He then looked forward to see what had made her so. His heart drowned in the depths of himself. He too, then, became determined than before. “They might attempt to make us weak, when really, we are strong!”
