Famous quotes containing the word claimed:

    In contrast with envy, which usually occurs between two people and is focused upon another person’s qualities or possessions, jealousy occurs when a third person becomes a threat to a dyad. Jealousy involves the loss or the impending loss of a relationship that one wants to hold onto, a relationship that is vital to personal fulfillment and claimed as one’s own.
    Carol S. Becker (b. 1942)

    Bit by bit ... she had claimed herself. Freeing yourself was one thing; claiming ownership of that freed self was another.
    Toni Morrison (b. 1931)

    No actual skeptic, so far as I know, has claimed to disbelieve in an objective world. Skepticism is not a denial of belief, but rather a denial of rational grounds for belief.
    William Pepperell Montague (1842–1910)
