The class which has the means of material production at its disposal, has control at the same time over the means of mental production, so that thereby, generally speaking, the ideas of those who lack the means of mental production are subject to it. The ruling ideas are nothing more than the ideal expression of the dominant material relationships, the dominant material relationships grasped as ideas."

Parents always talk about romantic relationships being so ephemeral and fleeting in high school. What they don't get is that friendships can be the same way."

This explains why some friends and family members can be so demanding, smothering, and needy. It also explains why we're so easily inflated by praise and deflated by criticism. It's as if others have the ability to determine our identity for that day based on a word or even a glance"
Author: Mark Driscoll

Eventually I had to step clear of them-or I might have fallen into the temptation of allowing them to do just that."
Author: Mary Balogh
