Famous quotes containing the word aggressive:

    You were born into a different world that will present you with different gifts and challenges. A new vision of manhood will be called for that does not tie so closely into the more aggressive and competitive residues of our male character. You will need to search out new ways of expressing strength, showing mastery, and exhibiting courage—ways that do not depend upon confronting the world before you as an adversary.
    Kent Nerburn (20th century)

    When parents fail to set appropriate limits, children may feel more vulnerable at night: the aggressive urges that have not been “tamed” by day may be terrifying to a small child alone in the dark.
    Cathy Rindner Tempelsman (20th century)

    So in your discussions of the nuclear freeze proposals, I urge you to beware the temptation of pride—the temptation blithely to declare yourselves above it all and label both sides equally at fault, to ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of an evil empire, to simply call the arms race a giant misunderstanding and thereby remove yourself from the struggle between right and wrong, good and evil.
    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)
