Famous quotes containing the word position:

    Being in a family is like being in a play. Each birth order position is like a different part in a play, with distinct and separate characteristics for each part. Therefore, if one sibling has already filled a part, such as the good child, other siblings may feel they have to find other parts to play, such as rebellious child, academic child, athletic child, social child, and so on.
    Jane Nelson (20th century)

    Ladies there is no neutral position for us to assume.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    People who are in a fortunate position always attribute virtue to what makes them so happy.
