Quotes by Robert W. Fuller  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“The golden rule of relationships is “Cause no indignity.” A loving relationship is one in which both partners take care to protect each other’s dignity. A wounded soul heals more slowly than a wounded body, so it is as important to avoid indignity as it is to avoid outright harm.”
Robert W. Fuller, The Rowan Tree

“When the power inherent in a position of authority is used to fortify that position, the institution's purpose is subverted. Behaviors are not aligned with the institution';s professed goals; rather they are skewed to preserve the rank, power, salaries, and security of rank-holders. -- "Somebodies and Nobodies", by Robert W. Fuller”
Robert W. Fuller

“Twain broke with the tradition of asking “Who Am I?” and its species-wide variant “Who Is Man?” on the grounds that a “who-question” is a leading question. It predisposes us to expect the answer to be a sentient being, not unlike ourselves, “whom” we’re trying to characterize.”
Robert W. Fuller, Genomes, Menomes, Wenomes: Neuroscience and Human Dignity
