Famous quotes containing the words dependence and/or substance:

    ... dependence upon material possessions inevitably results in the destruction of human character.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    I do not remember anything which Confucius has said directly respecting man’s “origin, purpose, and destiny.” He was more practical than that. He is full of wisdom applied to human relations,—to the private life,—the family,—government, etc. It is remarkable that, according to his own account, the sum and substance of his teaching is, as you know, to do as you would be done by.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
