Famous quotes containing the word single:

    Civilization is a process in the service of Eros, whose purpose is to combine single human individuals, and after that families, then races, peoples and nations, into one great unity, the unity of mankind. Why this has to happen, we do not know; the work of Eros is precisely this.
    Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)

    The pure serene of memory in one man,—
    A ripple widening from a single stone
    Winding around the waters of the world.
    Theodore Roethke (1908–1963)

    When words fail us or, quite the opposite, when they rush from our mouths faster than we would like, we can console ourselves that if no single moment is going to define our relationship with a child, neither can a single lapse of good judgment or patience destroy it.
    Cathy Rindner Tempelsman (20th century)
