Famous quotes containing the word negative:

    For those parents from lower-class and minority communities ... [who] have had minimal experience in negotiating dominant, external institutions or have had negative and hostile contact with social service agencies, their initial approaches to the school are often overwhelming and difficult. Not only does the school feel like an alien environment with incomprehensible norms and structures, but the families often do not feel entitled to make demands or force disagreements.
    Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)

    Barbara Tuchman (1912–1989)

    The negative always wins at last, but I like it none the better for that.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
