Famous quotes containing the word supported:

    Absolute power can only be supported by error, ignorance and prejudice.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    Traditionally, marriage involved a kind of bartering, rather than mutual inter-dependence or role sharing. Husbands financially and economically supported wives, while wives emotionally, psychologically and socially supported husbands. He brought home the bacon, she cooked it. He fixed the plumbing, she the psyche.
    Bettina Arndt (20th century)

    Our thoughts are always elsewhere; we are stayed and supported by the hope for a better life, or by the hope that our children will turn out well, or that our name will be famous in the future, or that we shall escape the evils of this life, or that vengeance threatens those who are the cause of our death.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
