Famous quotes containing the word shock:

    The pointless ferocities of intellectual life shock businessmen, who kill only to eat.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    It is not only their own need to mother that takes some women by surprise; there is also the shock of discovering the complexity of alternative child-care arrangements that have been made to sound so simple. Those for whom the intended solution is equal parenting have found that some parents are more equal than others.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)

    Without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like the flint which awaits the shock of the iron before it can give forth its spark.
    Henri-Frédéric Amiel (1821–1881)
