Famous quotes containing the word treat:

    An actress is not a machine, but they treat you like a machine. A money machine.
    Marilyn Monroe (1926–1962)

    The brotherhood of men does not imply their equality. Families have their fools and their men of genius, their black sheep and their saints, their worldly successes and their worldly failures. A man should treat his brothers lovingly and with justice, according to the deserts of each. But the deserts of every brother are not the same.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    The most powerful lessons about ethics and morality do not come from school discussions or classes in character building. They come from family life where people treat one another with respect, consideration, and love.
    Neil Kurshan (20th century)
