Dependence

Famous quotes containing the word dependence:

    ... dependence upon material possessions inevitably results in the destruction of human character.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    The more the specific feelings of being under obligation range themselves under a supreme principle of human dependence the clearer and more fertile will be the realization of the concept, indispensable to all true culture, of service; from the service of God down to the simple social relationship as between employer and employee.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    ... the whole Wilsonian buncombe ... its ideational hollowness, its ludicrous strutting and bombast, its heavy dependence upon greasy and meaningless words, its frequent descents to mere sound and fury, signifying nothing.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
