Famous quotes containing the words religion and/or psychology:

    In the religion of all nations a purity is hinted at, which, I fear, men never attain to.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Views of women, on one side, as inwardly directed toward home and family and notions of men, on the other, as outwardly striving toward fame and fortune have resounded throughout literature and in the texts of history, biology, and psychology until they seem uncontestable. Such dichotomous views defy the complexities of individuals and stifle the potential for people to reveal different dimensions of themselves in various settings.
    Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)
