“Society is not a mere sum of individuals. Rather, the system formed by their association represents a specific reality which has its own characteristics. … The group thinks, feels, and acts quite differently from the way in which its members would were they isolated. If, then, we begin with the individual, we shall be able to understand nothing of what takes place in the group.” “When morals are sufficient, law is unnecessary; when morals are insufficient, law is unenforceable.”

“Each victim of suicide gives his act a personal stamp which expresses his temperament, the special conditions in which he is involved, and which, consequently, cannot be explained by the social and general causes of the phenomenon.”

“Socialism is not a science, a sociology in miniature: it is a cry of pain.”
