Favorite Mothers Kitchen Quotes

1. "You can't make flivers without steel - and you can't make tragedies without social instability. The world's stable now. People are happy; they get what they want, and they never want what they can't get. They're well off; they're safe; they're never ill; they're not afraid of death; they're blissfully ignorant of passion and old age; they're plagued with no mothers or fathers; they've got no wives, or children, or lovers to feel strongly about; they're so conditioned that they pratically can't help behaving as they ought to behave."
Author: Aldous Huxley
2. "We sit on the kitchen exchanging these diabolical outgrowths of overfertile minds."
Author: Anaïs Nin
3. "For life today in America is based on the premise of ever-widening circles of contact and communication. It involves not only family demands, but community demands, national demands, international demands on the good citizen, through social and cultural pressures, through newspapers, magazines, radio programs, political drives, charitable appeals, and so on. My mind reels in it, What a circus act we women perform every day of our lives. It puts the trapeze artist to shame. Look at us. We run a tight rope daily, balancing a pile of books on the head. Baby-carriage, parasol, kitchen chair, still under control. Steady now!"
Author: Anne Morrow Lindbergh
4. "What Friedan gave to the world was, "the problem that has no name." She not only named it but dissected it. The advances of science, the development of labor-saving appliances, the development of the suburbs: all had come together to offer women in the 1950s a life their mothers had scarcely dreamed of, free from rampant disease, onerous drudgery, noxious city streets. But the green lawns and big corner lots were isolating, the housework seemed to expand to fill the time available, and polio and smallpox were replaced by depression and alcoholism. All that was covered up in a kitchen conspiracy of denial...[i]nstead the problem was with the mystique of waxed floors and perfectly applied lipstick."
Author: Betty Friedan
5. "I can recall vividly when I was about 13 years old, my mom and sister went on vacation for a month and left me to "man" the kitchen with notes on our how to do our favourite meals….that was something else! I was already a pro in seasoning meat and chicken but not cooking … at first I put too much water in the chicken and then poured in flour to thicken it. The concoction tasted great but it came out like porridge and was sliced like cake…i was the only one who dared to eat it...lololFrom that day forward I never placed a role on females – whether it was to cook, clean or wash, I made it my business to be able to handle myself in whatever circumstance."
Author: Calvert Jones
6. "Teenage boys, goaded by their surging hormones run in packs like the primal horde. They have only a brief season of exhilarating liberty between control by their mothers and control by their wives."
Author: Camille Paglia
7. "We were never organized readers who would see a book through to its end in any sory of logical order. We weave in and out of words like tourists on a hop-on, hop-off bus tour. Put a book down in the kitchen to go to the bathroom and you might return to find it gone, replaced by another of equal interest. We are indiscriminate."
Author: Eleanor Brown
8. "...once becoming a mother, a woman might be radicalized in her feminism. She had a greater stake in saving the earth from male politicians. She had a greater stake in education and health, in the environment, in all social policy. She finally understood the way our society makes children and mothers the lowers of priorities.......I was hardly mellowed by the maternal transformation. If anything, my feminism grew more fierce."
Author: Erica Jong
9. "I am a good housekeeper. You can eat off my kitchen floor. Just scoop all the crumbs together and you've got quite a meal."
Author: Janene Murphy
10. "Sadie heard her inside cleaning up the kitchen and wondered what dreams Betty's mother had for herself, if all mothers had them, bottled up beneath their mother exteriors."
Author: Karen Brown
11. "Oh, Kathleen!" sighed Nancy as the two went into the kitchen together. "Isn't mother the most interesting 'scolder' you ever listened to? I love to hear her do it, especially when somebody else is getting it. When it's I, I grow smaller and smaller, curling myself up like a little worm. Then when she has finished I squirm to the door and wriggle out. Other mothers say: 'If you don't, I shall tell your father!' 'Do as I tell you, and ask no questions.' 'I never heard of such behavior in my life!' 'Haven't you any sense of propriety?' 'If this happens again I shall have to do something desperate.' 'Leave the room at once,' and so on; but mother sets you to thinking.""Mother doesn't really scold," Kathleen objected."No, but she shows you how wrong you are, just the same..."
Author: Kate Douglas Wiggin
12. "Here was this man Tom Guthrie in Holt standing at the back window in the kitchen of his house smoking cigarettes and looking out over the back lot where the sun was just coming up."
Author: Kent Haruf
13. "The clocks were striking midnight and the rooms were very still as a figure glided quietly from bed to bed, smoothing a coverlid here, settling a pillow there, and pausing to look long and tenderly at each unconscious face, to kiss each with lips that mutely blessed, and to pray the fervent prayers which only mothers utter."
Author: Louisa May Alcott
14. "Their mothers had finally caught up to them and been proven right. There were consequences after all but they were the consequences to things you didn't even know you'd done."
Author: Margaret Atwood
15. "Our mothers are racked with the pains of our physical birth; we ourselves suffer the longer pains of our spiritual growth."
Author: Mary Antin
16. "Common sense...was one of the strongest ingredients of her character. She knew well enough that her fate was not to be an iota different from the fate of all mothers since the world began. her five would all go, somehow and somewhere, one by one. She would do what she coult to manage the goings, no doubt about that, but meanwhile their food must be prepared and their buttons sewed on to the best of her marked ability. And so they were."
Author: Nancy Byrd Turner
17. "Mothers don't cry at weddings because they're sentimental-- xxx Mothers cry because they know how hard it's going to be."
Author: Sean Stewart
