Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
He cast off his friends as a huntsman his pack, for he knew when he pleased he could whistle them back.
This quote illustrates a person's ability to manipulate and control their relationships. By comparing friends to a pack of hounds, it suggests that the person can easily discard or call back their friends at will, hinting at a lack of genuine emotional connection. It conveys the idea that the individual has the power to control their social interactions, showing a certain level of confidence and detachment.
I had never walked on the street alone when I was growing up in Calcutta, up to age 20. I had never handled money. You know, there was always a couple of bodyguards behind me, who took care if I wanted... I needed pencils for school, I needed a notebook, they were the ones who were taking out the money. I was constantly guarded.
