Famous quotes containing the word ties:
“We must remember when we speak of the negativism of the toddler that this is also the child who is intoxicated with the discoveries of the second year, a joyful child who is firmly bound to his parents and his new-found world through ties of love. The so-called negativism is one of the aspects of this development, but under ordinary circumstances it does not become anarchy. Its a kind of declaration of independence, but there is no intention to unseat the government.”
—Selma H. Fraiberg (20th century)
