Dependent

Famous quotes containing the word dependent:

    Let ... individuals make the most of what God has given them, have their neighbors do the same, and then do all they can to serve each other.

    Sojourner Truth (c. 1797–1883)

    The awareness that health is dependent upon habits that we control makes us the first generation in history that to a large extent determines its own destiny.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    One of the baffling things about life is that the purposes of institutions may be ideal, while their administration, dependent upon the faults and weaknesses of human beings, may be bad.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)
