Who is joseph h. pleck?

Famous quotes containing the words pleck and/or joseph:

    Many people now believe that if fathers are more involved in raising children than they were, children and sons in particular will learn that men can be warm and supportive of others as well as be high achievers. Thus, fathers’ involvement may be beneficial not because it will help support traditional male roles, but because it will help break them down.
    —Joseph H. Pleck (20th century)

    A lifeless planet. And yet, yet still serving a useful purpose, I hope. Yes, a sun. Warming the surface of some other world. Giving light to those who may need it.
    Franklin Coen, and Joseph Newman. Exeter (Jeff Morrow)
