Famous quotes containing the word treat:

    People get a bad impression of it by continually trying to treat it as if it was a bank clerk, who ought to be on time on Tuesday next, instead of philosophically seeing it as a painter, who may do anything so long as you don’t try to predict what.
    Katharine Whitehorn (b. 1926)

    Taking the child’s point of view demands good will, time, and effort on the part of parents. The child is the clear beneficiary. Parents who make the effort to understand their children’s point of view are likely to treat children fairly and in an age-appropriate manner.
    David Elkind (20th century)

    One should never pursue the hazards of fortune to their very ends and ... it behooves all adventurers to treat their good luck with reverence, neither bothering nor upsetting it.
