Famous quotes containing the word living:

    Immortal mortals, mortal immortals, one living the others’ death and dying the others’ life.
    Heraclitus (c. 535–475 B.C.)

    My philosophy is inverted Platonism: the further a thing is from true being, the purer, the lovelier, the better it is. Living in illusion as a goal!
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The “universal moments” of child rearing are in fact nothing less than a confrontation with the most basic problems of living in society: a facing through one’s children of all the conflicts inherent in human relationships, a clarification of issues that were unresolved in one’s own growing up. The experience of child rearing not only can strengthen one as an individual but also presents the opportunity to shape human relationships of the future.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)
