Reflects

Famous quotes containing the word reflects:

    Our treatment of both older people and children reflects the value we place on independence and autonomy. We do our best to make our children independent from birth. We leave them all alone in rooms with the lights out and tell them, “Go to sleep by yourselves.” And the old people we respect most are the ones who will fight for their independence, who would sooner starve to death than ask for help.
    Margaret Mead (1901–1978)

    He is the best man who, when making his plans, fears and reflects on everything that can happen to him, but in the moment of action is bold.
    Herodotus (c. 484–424 B.C.)

    How like a prodigal doth nature seem,
    When thou, for all thy gold, so common art!
    Thou teachest me to deem
    More sacredly of every human heart,
    Since each reflects in joy its scanty gleam
    Of Heaven, and could some wondrous secret show,
    Did we but pay the love we owe,
    And with a child’s undoubting wisdom look
    On all these living pages of God’s book.
    James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)
