Famous quotes containing the words table, main, emphasized and/or relationship:

    Will you greet your doom
    As final; set him loaves and wine; knowing
    The game is finished when he plays his ace,
    And overturn the table and go into the next room?
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)

    The more the development of late capitalism renders obsolete or at least suspect the real possibilities of self, self- fulfillment and actualization, the more they are emphasized as if they could spring to life through an act of will alone.
    Richard Dean Rosen (b. 1949)

    The relationship between mother and professional has not been a partnership in which both work together on behalf of the child, in which the expert helps the mother achieve her own goals for her child. Instead, professionals often behave as if they alone are advocates for the child; as if they are the guardians of the child’s needs; as if the mother left to her own devices will surely damage the child and only the professional can rescue him.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)
