Dangerous

Famous quotes containing the word dangerous:

    The true man wants two things: danger and play. For that reason he wants woman, as the most dangerous plaything.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Even healthy families need outside sources of moral guidance to keep those tensions from imploding—and this means, among other things, a public philosophy of gender equality and concern for child welfare. When instead the larger culture aggrandizes wife beaters, degrades women or nods approvingly at child slappers, the family gets a little more dangerous for everyone, and so, inevitably, does the larger world.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (20th century)

    No human beings more dangerous than those who have suffered for a belief: the great persecutors are recruited from the martyrs not quite beheaded. Far from diminishing the appetite for power, suffering exasperates it.
    E.M. Cioran (b. 1911)
