Famous quotes containing the word order:

    One serious drawback about letters is that, in order to get them, one must send some out. When it comes to the mail, I feel it is better to receive than to give.
    Joseph Epstein (b. 1937)

    People press toward the light not in order to see better but in order to shine better.—We are happy to regard the one before whom we shine as light.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Almost everywhere we find . . . the use of various coercive measures, to rid ourselves as quickly as possible of the child within us—i.e., the weak, helpless, dependent creature—in order to become an independent competent adult deserving of respect. When we reencounter this creature in our children, we persecute it with the same measures once used in ourselves.
    Alice Miller (20th century)
