Famous quotes containing the word counter:

    The individual protests against the world, but he doesn’t get beyond protest, he is just a single protester. When he wants to be more than that, he has to counter power with power, he has to oppose the system with another system.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)

    Family traditions counter alienation and confusion. They help us define who we are; they provide something steady, reliable and safe in a confusing world.
    Susan Lieberman (20th century)

    Ellen Galinsky (20th century)
