Famous quotes containing the word dependent:

    Man is so muddled, so dependent on the things immediately before his eyes, that every day even the most submissive believer can be seen to risk the torments of the afterlife for the smallest pleasure.
    Joseph De Maistre (1753–1821)

    The sadistic person is as dependent on the submissive person as the latter is on the former; neither can live without the other. The difference is only that the sadistic person commands, exploits, hurts, humiliates, and that the masochistic person is commanded, exploited, hurt, humiliated. This is a considerable difference in a realistic sense; in a deeper emotional sense, the difference is not so great as that which they both have in common: fusion without integrity.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)

    The female of the genus homo is economically dependent on the male. He is her food supply.
    Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860–1935)
