Famous quotes containing the words bourgeois and/or louise:

    The bourgeois treasures nothing more highly than the self.... And so at the cost of intensity he achieves his own preservation and security. His harvest is a quiet mind which he prefers to being possessed by God, as he prefers comfort to pleasure, convenience to liberty, and a pleasant temperature to that deathly inner consuming fire.
    Hermann Hesse (1877–1962)

    The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.
    —Denis Waitly. Quoted in The Winning Family, ch. 25, by Louise Hart (1987)
