Erosion Quotations

Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure. Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins.
Charles Stanley

Wangari Maathai

The scary thing is a dramatic erosion of American position in the world - its economic, military position, as well as America's influence.

Dinesh D'Souza

The erosion of extended family concept and losing out on values are the two things that are primarily responsible for the growing mismatch in the parent-child relationship.

Mikhail Gorbachev
