Normal

Famous quotes containing the word normal:

    What strikes many twin researchers now is not how much identical twins are alike, but rather how different they are, given the same genetic makeup....Multiples don’t walk around in lockstep, talking in unison, thinking identical thoughts. The bond for normal twins, whether they are identical or fraternal, is based on how they, as individuals who are keenly aware of the differences between them, learn to relate to one another.
    Pamela Patrick Novotny (20th century)

    Everyone in the full enjoyment of all the blessings of his life, in his normal condition, feels some individual responsibility for the poverty of others. When the sympathies are not blunted by any false philosophy, one feels reproached by one’s own abundance.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)

    Love brings to light the lofty and hidden characteristics of the lover—what is rare and exceptional in him: to that extent it can easily be deceptive with respect to what is normal in him.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
