Famous quotes containing the word sensitivity:

    Freedom of choice for women, at the expense of the caring, warmth, and sensitivity to others so often associated with them, may be empty. In the thrust to redefine male and female roles, women must not become men; nor can men be permitted the continual dehumanization of their roles.
    Kathleen Weibel (b. 1945)

    ...some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him, saying, “Go away, baldhead! Go away, baldhead!”
    Bible: Hebrew, 2 Kings 2:23.

    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
