Famous quotes containing the word operate:

    The surgeon doesn’t operate without first taking off the patient’s clothes. Nor do we with the mind.
    Muriel Box (b. 1905)

    The social forces that operate on a family during the daughter’s formative years continue to shape her experience. Thus the families, schools, and jobs that involve poor women are likely to be very hierarchically arranged, demanding conformity, passivity, and obedience—all unsupportive of continued intellectual growth.
    Mary Field Belenky (20th century)

    To coƶperate in the highest as well as the lowest sense, means to get our living together. I heard it proposed lately that two young men should travel together over the world, the one without money, earning his means as he went, before the mast and behind the plow, the other carrying a bill of exchange in his pocket. It was easy to see that they could not long be companions or coƶperate, since one would not operate at all. They would part at the first interesting crisis in their adventures.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
