Bond

Famous quotes containing the word bond:

    The principle of subordination is the great bond of union and harmony through the universe.
    Catherine E. Beecher (1800–1878)

    The ideal of men and women sharing equally in parenting and working is a vision still. What would it be like if women and men were less different from each other, if our worlds were not so foreign? A male friend who shares daily parenting told me that he knows at his very core what his wife’s loving for their daughter feels like, and that this knowing creates a stronger bond between them.
    —Anonymous Mother. Ourselves and Our Children, by Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, ch. 6 (1978)

    They lived under a just and moderate government, and they admitted that one bond of their fidelity was that their rulers were the better men.
    Titus Livius (Livy)
