Famous quotes containing the word dependent:

    Almost everywhere we find . . . the use of various coercive measures, to rid ourselves as quickly as possible of the child within us—i.e., the weak, helpless, dependent creature—in order to become an independent competent adult deserving of respect. When we reencounter this creature in our children, we persecute it with the same measures once used in ourselves.
    Alice Miller (20th century)

    People who get through life dependent on other people’s possessions are always the first to lecture you on how little possessions count.
    Ben Elton (b. 1959)

    One of the baffling things about life is that the purposes of institutions may be ideal, while their administration, dependent upon the faults and weaknesses of human beings, may be bad.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)
