"Culture is made by humans, confirmed by others, conventionalized, and passed on for younger people or newcomers to learn. It provides people with a meaningful context in which to meet, to think about themselves, and to face the outer world." --Fons Trompenaars and Charles Hampden-Turner, Riding the Waves of Culture
