Dependence is a perpetual call upon humanity, and a greater incitement to tenderness and pity than any other motive whatever.
      - Joseph Addison

In an arch each single stone which, if severed from the rest, would be perhaps defenceless is sufficiently secured by the solidity and entireness of the whole fabric, of which it is a part.
      - Robert Boyle

Dependence goes somewhat against the grain of a generous mind; and it is no wonder that it should do so, considering the unreasonable advantage which is often taken of the inequality of fortune.
      - Jeremy Collier

Thou shall know by experience how salt the savor is of others' bread, and how sad a path it is to climb and descend another's stairs.
      - Dante ("Dante Alighieri")

We are never without a pilot. When we know not how to steer, and dare not hoist a sail, we can drift. The current knows the way, though we do not. The ship of heaven guides itself, and will not accept a wooden rudder.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

God has made no one absolute.
      - Owen Felltham (Feltham)

There is no one subsists by himself alone.
      - Owen Felltham (Feltham)

The greatest man living may stand in need of the meanest, as much as the meanest does of him.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

People may live as much retired from the world as they please; but sooner or later, before they are aware, they will find themselves debtor or creditor to somebody.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

We often have to put up with most from those on whom we most depend.
      - Baltasar Gracian (used pseudonym Lorenzo Gracian)

Man is the circled oak; woman the ivy.
      - Aaron Hill

Learn to depend upon yourself by doing things in accordance with your own way of thinking.
      - Grenville Kleiser

He who imagines he can do without the world deceives himself much; but he who fancies the world cannot do without him is still more mistaken.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

Depend on no man, on no friend, but him who can depend on himself.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)

When we consider how weak, we are in ourselves, yea, the very strongest of us, and how assaulted, we may justly wonder that we can continue one day in the state of grace; but when we look on the strength by which we are guarded, the power of God, then we see the reason of our stability to the end; for omnipotency supports us, and the everlasting arms are under us.
      - Archbishop Robert Leighton

How beautifully is it ordered, that as many thousands work for one, so must every individual bring his labor to make the whole! The highest is not to despise the lowest, nor the lowest to envy the highest; each must live in all and by all. Who will not work neither shall he eat. So God has ordered that men, being in need of each other, should learn to love each other, and bear each other's burdens.
      - George Augustus Henry Sala

Life is a system of relations rather than a positive and independent existence; and he who would be happy himself and make others happy must carefully preserve these relations. He cannot stand apart in surly and haughty egoism; let him learn that he is as much dependent on others as others are on him.
      - George Augustus Henry Sala

There is none made so great but he may both need the help and service, and stand in fear of the power and unkindness, even of the meanest of mortals.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

The beautiful must ever rest in the arms of the sublime. The gentle needs the strong to sustain it, as much as the rock-flowers need rocks to grow on, or the ivy the rugged wall which it embraces.
      - Harriet Elizabeth Beecher Stowe

That acknowledgment of weakness which we make in imploring to be relieved from hunger and from temptation is surely wisely put in our daily prayer. Think of it, you who are rich, and take heed how you turn a beggar away.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

Heaven's eternal wisdom has decreed that man of man should ever stand in need.
      - Theocritus
