Who is stanley i. greenspan?

Famous quotes containing the words greenspan and/or stanley:

    Parents are led to believe that they must be consistent, that is, always respond to the same issue the same way. Consistency is good up to a point but your child also needs to understand context and subtlety . . . much of adult life is governed by context: what is appropriate in one setting is not appropriate in another; the way something is said may be more important than what is said. . . .
    —Stanley I. Greenspan (20th century)

    For when we must resign our vital breath,
    Our Loves by Fate benighted,
    We by this friendship shall survive in death,
    Even in divorce united.
    Weak Love through fortune or distrust
    In time forgets to burn,
    But this pursues us to the Urn,
    And marries either’s Dust.
    —Thomas Stanley (1625–1678)
