Quotes About Judgment Of Others

"If the meaning of life has become doubtful, if ones relations to others and to oneself do not offer security, then fame is one means to silence ones doubts. It has a function to be compared with that of the Egyptian pyramids or the Christian faith in immortality: it elevates ones individual life from its limitations and instability to the plane of indestructability; if ones name is known to ones contemporaries and if one can hope that it will last for centuries, then ones life has meaning and significance by this very reflection of it in the judgments of others." - Author: Erich Fromm

Quotes About Stuck Up

"That was what stuck in the craws of all the good women of Deptford: Mrs Dempster had not been raped, as a decent woman would have been—no, she had yielded because a man wanted her. The subject was not one that could be freely discussed even among intimates, but it was understood without saying that if women began to yield for such reasons as that, marriage and society would not last long. Any man who spoke up for Mrs Dempster probably believed in Free Love. Certainly he associated sex with pleasure, and that put him in a class with filthy thinkers like Cece Athelstan." - Author: Robertson Davies
