Famous quotes containing the words syndrome and/or lynch:

    Women are taught that their main goal in life is to serve others—first men, and later, children. This prescription leads to enormous problems, for it is supposed to be carried out as if women did not have needs of their own, as if one could serve others without simultaneously attending to one’s own interests and desires. Carried to its “perfection,” it produces the martyr syndrome or the smothering wife and mother.
    Jean Baker Miller (20th century)

    A physician can sometimes parry the scythe of death, but has no power over the sand in the hourglass.
    —Hester Lynch Piozzi (1741–1821)
