"If you were studying brain surgery or medieval history, you might not have an opportunity to use what you learned in your day-to-day life. Sociology is very different. Every day you will wake up into a sociological laboratory with a massive experiment underway." (Earl Babbie, 1994. The Sociological Spirit)
"An introduction to sociology is, therefore, an invitation to a very special kind of passion." (Peter L. Berger, 1963. Invitation to Sociology)
