Famous quotes containing the word isolation:

    One of the most significant effects of age-segregation in our society has been the isolation of children from the world of work. Whereas in the past children not only saw what their parents did for a living but even shared substantially in the task, many children nowadays have only a vague notion of the nature of the parent’s job, and have had little or no opportunity to observe the parent, or for that matter any other adult, when he is fully engaged in his work.
    Urie Bronfenbrenner (b. 1917)

    I am greatly pleased with the public, authentic isolation in which we two, you and I, now find ourselves. It is wholly in accord with our attitude and our principles.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)

    But your isolation must not be mechanical, but spiritual, that is, must be elevation.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
