Famous quotes containing the word bond:

    Camillo. Prosperity’s the very bond of love,
    Whose fresh complexion and whose heart together
    Affliction alters.
    Perdita. One of these is true:
    I think affliction may subdue the cheek,
    But not take in the mind.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The ideal of men and women sharing equally in parenting and working is a vision still. What would it be like if women and men were less different from each other, if our worlds were not so foreign? A male friend who shares daily parenting told me that he knows at his very core what his wife’s loving for their daughter feels like, and that this knowing creates a stronger bond between them.
    —Anonymous Mother. Ourselves and Our Children, by Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, ch. 6 (1978)
