How to use culture in a sentence?

  1. Brian Walker:

    It's got a maturing audience, it's an educated audience, it's an audience that is very conversant with cafe culture, the urbanisation of food, takeaway, home delivery and it's one in which service has always been a cornerstone, and because of its isolation, McDonald's are able to measure its performance.

  2. Lisa Haisha:

    Laughter is a salve. It’s the best medicine around. Poet Pablo Neruda called it “the language of the soul.” I know this to be a universal truth because I’ve seen this play out in every culture around the world. People find respite and release in laughter.

  3. Gregory Bateson, "Mind and Matter":

    In the transmission of human culture, people always attempt to replicate, to pass on to the next generation the skills and values of the parents, but the attempt always fails because cultural transmission is geared to learning, not D.N.A.

  4. Andrea Pirlo:

    What I ’m talking about is actually a system or culture. I don’t mean that the level of technical skills are low. I just mean there is a cultural void that needs to be filled.

  5. Mohamad Rabee Sanoufi:

    Now I've got a lot of German friends – I go to their homes and we exchange culture and cook together so I'm getting to know how Germans think, we became like family.
