Famous quotes containing the word shaped:

    The route through childhood is shaped by many forces, and it differs for each of us. Our biological inheritance, the temperament with which we are born, the care we receive, our family relationships, the place where we grow up, the schools we attend, the culture in which we participate, and the historical period in which we live—all these affect the paths we take through childhood and condition the remainder of our lives.
    Robert H. Wozniak (20th century)

    How will it be with kingdoms and with kings—
    With those who shaped him to the thing he is—
    When this dumb Terror shall rise to judge the world,
    After the silence of the centuries?
    Edwin Markham (1852–1940)

    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)
