Famous quotes containing the word surviving:

    The misery of the middle-aged woman is a grey and hopeless thing, born of having nothing to live for, of disappointment and resentment at having been gypped by consumer society, and surviving merely to be the butt of its unthinking scorn.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    For my own part, I commonly attend more to nature than to man, but any affecting human event may blind our eyes to natural objects. I was so absorbed in him as to be surprised whenever I detected the routine of the natural world surviving still, or met persons going about their affairs indifferent.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Never have anything to do with the near surviving representatives of anyone whose name appears in the death column of the Times as having “passed away.”
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)
