Famous quotes containing the word aversion:

    My aversion from music rests on political grounds.
    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)

    My true friends have always given me that supreme proof of devotion, a spontaneous aversion for the man I loved.
    Colette [Sidonie Gabrielle Colette] (1873–1954)

    Quintilian [educational writer in Rome around A.D. 100] thought that the earliest years of the child’s life were crucial. Education should start earlier than age seven, within the family. It should not be so hard as to give the child an aversion to learning. Rather, these early lessons would take the form of play—that embryonic notion of kindergarten.
    C. John Sommerville (20th century)
