Famous quotes containing the word opposition:

    At times it seems that the media have become the mainstream culture in children’s lives. Parents have become the alternative. Americans once expected parents to raise their children in accordance with the dominant cultural messages. Today they are expected to raise their children in opposition to it.
    Ellen Goodman (20th century)

    Except for poverty, incompatibility, opposition of parents, absence of love on one side and of desire to marry on both, nothing stands in the way of our happy union.
    Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)

    Therefore the love which us doth bind,
    But fate so enviously debars,
    Is the conjunction of the mind,
    And opposition of the stars.
    Andrew Marvell (1621–1678)
