Ashley Montagu   Category:

The principal contributor to loneliness in this country is television. What happens is that the family 'gets together' alone.
Ashley Montagu   Category:

There have been some medical schools in which somewhere along the assembly line, a faculty member has informed the students, not so much by what he said but by what he did, that there is an intimate relation between curing and caring.
