Ashley Montagu quotes :
The principal contributor to loneliness in this country is television. What happens is that the family 'gets together' alone.Ashley Montagu
The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us.Ashley Montagu
It is work, work that one delights in, that is the surest guarantor of happiness. But even here it is a work that has to be earned by labor in one's earlier years. One should labor so hard in youth that everything one does subsequently is easy by comparison.Ashley Montagu
The doctor has been taught to be interested not in health but in disease. What the public is taught is that health is the cure for disease.Ashley Montagu
