Famous quotes containing the word lack:

    The sage as astronomer.—As long as you still experience the stars as something “above you,” you still lack viewpoint of knowledge.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    There are moments when, faced with our lack of success, I wonder whether we are failures, proud but impotent. One thing reassures me as to our value: the boredom that afflicts us. It is the hall-mark of quality in modern men.

But the tug between traditional and egalitarian models of marriage runs from top to bottom of the class ladder.
    Arlie Hochschild (20th century)
