„One of the indictments of civilization is that happiness and intelligence are so rarely found in the same person.“

—  William Feather Publisher, Author 1889 - 1981

This has been attributed to Feather in some 21st century publications, but the earliest source yet located is as an anonymous proverb posted in The Poultry Item, Vol. 28 (1925) http://books.google.com/books?id=g71JAAAAYAAJ&q=%22+happiness+and+intelligence+are+so+rarely+found+in+the+same+person%22&dq=%22+happiness+and+intelligence+are+so+rarely+found+in+the+same+person%22&hl=en&sa=X&ei=gYhOU4f6FOW_0AHNpIHQCA&ved=0CFkQ6AEwCA

„Emergency conditions are, almost by definition, rare in the normally functioning peaceful society.“

—  Abraham Maslow, книга Motivation and Personality

Источник: Motivation and Personality (1954), p. 17.
Контексте: For our chronically and extremely hungry man, Utopia can be defined simply as a place where there is plenty of food. He tends to think that, if only he is guaranteed food for the rest of his life, he will be perfectly happy and will never want anything more. Life itself tends to be defined in terms of eating. Freedom, love, community feeling, respect, philosophy, may all be waved aside as fripperies that are useless since they fail to fill the stomach. Such a man may fairly be said to live by bread alone. It cannot possibly be denied that such things are true, but their generality can be denied. Emergency conditions are, almost by definition, rare in the normally functioning peaceful society.

—  Colin Wilson author 1931 - 2013

Источник: The Black Room (1975), p. 20
Контексте: All men are stuck in a kind of fog. They're surrounded by a wall of fog. They think this is perfectly normal, but it's not. It means that since they can't see much beyond their own little situation, they tend to vegetate. They need some immediate stimulus to keep them alert.
