Famous quotes containing the words outline of, sociology and/or outline:

    One by one objects are defined—
    It quickens: clarity, outline of leaf

    But now the stark dignity of
    entrance—Still, the profound change
    has come upon them: rooted, they
    grip down and begin to awaken
    William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)

    Parenting, as an unpaid occupation outside the world of public power, entails lower status, less power, and less control of resources than paid work.
    Nancy Chodorow, U.S. professor, and sociologist. The Reproduction of Mothering Psychoanalysis and the Sociology of Gender, ch. 2 (1978)

    I am fooling only myself when I say my mother exists now only in the photograph on my bulletin board or in the outline of my hand or in the armful of memories I still hold tight. She lives on in everything I do. Her presence influenced who I was, and her absence influences who I am. Our lives are shaped as much by those who leave us as they are by those who stay. Loss is our legacy. Insight is our gift. Memory is our guide.
    Hope Edelman (20th century)
