Famous quotes containing the word threatened:

    [He] didn’t dare to, because his father had a weak heart and habitually threatened to drop dead if anybody hurt his feelings. You may have noticed that people with weak hearts are the tyrants of English married life.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    My mother protected me from the world and my father threatened me with it.
    Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)

    We are threatened with suffering from three directions: from our own body, which is doomed to decay and dissolution and which cannot even do without pain and anxiety as warning signals; from the external world, which may rage against us with overwhelming and merciless forces of destruction; and finally from our relations to other men. The suffering which comes from this last source is perhaps more painful than any other.
    Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)
