[We Were Women In Transition, Raised In One Era And Coming Of Age In Another, Very Different Time...here We Were, Entering The Workplace In The 1960s Questioning--and Often Rejecting--many Of The Values We Had Been Taught. We Were The Polite, Perfectionist "good Girls," Who Never Showed Our Drive Or Our Desires Around Men. Now We Were Becoming Mad Women, Discovering And Confronting Our Own Ambitions, A Quality Praised In Men But Stigmatized--still--in Women.]

"In Tehran, the 444 days of the Iran Hostage Crisis was the first world event in which you could literally have live events beamed into your living room. Now, every world event plays out on its own, and as a media event."

Arden Aoide Quotes

"As he walked, he knew the bathroom instantly because of the reflective tile floor. Hers would be the last door again. As he took another step forward, he could see a sliver of skin cut by the light, reflecting a glimpse of her pale skin. It served as a beacon to him, an invitation to touch something that would only belong to him. Could only be his."

Julie Zeilinger Quotes

"But somehow things took a sinister turn, and the division of labor came to be understood as the demarcation of a social hierarchy. Women kept busy with numerous domestic responsibilities while their male counterparts sole duty was tending to the flocks. Men had time to think critically, form political infrastructures, and ultimately, network with other men. Meanwhile, women were kept too busy to notice that somewhere along the line, they had become inferior. This is approximately when shit hit the fan."

Leon Camille Marius Croizat Quotes

"I have indeed lived and worked to my taste either in art or science. What more could a man desire? Knowledge has always been my goal. There is much that I shall leave behind undone…but something at least I was privileged to leave for the world to use, if it so intends…As the Latin poet said I will leave the table of the living like a guest who has eaten his fill. Yes, if I had another life to spend, I certainly would not waste it. But that cannot be, so why complain?"

Everett Ruess Quotes

"I like to be perfectly open and sincere, and yet it is impossible to be sincere to all of ones self at once, so for the deepest understanding one must seek those with whom one can be most truly ones self and never be blind to the ineffable drollery of it all."

Quotes About Mutual Feelings

"The engineers ready capitulation, however, did not hide from the poets mother the sad realization that the adventure into which she had plunged so impulsively--and which had seemed so intoxicatingly beautiful--had no turned out to be the great, mutually fulfilling love she was convinced she had a full right to expect. Her father was the owner of two prosperous Prague pharmacies, and her morality was based on strict give-and-take. For her part, she had invested everything in love (she had even been willing to sacrifice her parents and their peaceful existence); in turn, she had expected her partner to invest an equal amount of capital of feelings in the common account. To redress the imbalance, she gradually withdrew her emotional deposit and after the wedding presented a proud, severe face to her husband." - Author: Milan Kundera

Quotes About Fuchsias

"But usually not. Usually she thinks of the path to his house, whether deer had eaten the tops of the fiddleheads, why they dont eat the peppermint saprophytes sprouting along the creek; or she visualizes the approach to the cabin, its large windows, the fuchsias in front of it where Annas hummingbirds always hover with dirty green plumage and jeweled throats. Sometimes she thinks about her dream, the one in which her mother wakes up with no hands. The cabin smells of oil paint, but also of pine. The painters touch is sexual and not sexual, as she herself is....When the memory of that time came to her, it was touched by strangeness because it formed no pattern with the other events in her life. It lay in her memory like one piece of broken tile, salmon-coloured or the deep green of wet leaves, beautiful in itself but unusable in the design she was making" - Author: Robert Hass

Quotes About Identified

"By the middle twentieth century, few European nation-states had not at one time or another figured themselves as the outpost of Western Christian civilisation: France, imperial Germany, the Habsburg Reich, Poland with its self-image as przedmurze (bastion), even tsarist Russia. Each of these nation-state myths identified "barbarism" as the condition or ethic of their immediate eastward neighbour: for the French, the Germans were barbarous, for the Germans it was the Slavs, for the Poles the Russians, for the Russians the Mongol and Turkic peoples of Central Asia and eventually the Chinese." - Author: Neal Ascherson

Quotes About Famous Nurture

"Do all the other things, of course, the ambitious things — travel, get rich, get famous, innovate, lead, fall in love, make and lose fortunes, swim naked in wild jungle rivers (after first having them tested for monkey poop) — but as you do, to the extent that you can, err in the direction of kindness. Do those things that incline you towards the big questions, and avoid the things that would reduce you and make you trivial. That luminous part of you that exists beyond personality — your soul, if you will — is as bright and shining as any that has ever been. Bright as Shakespeares, bright as Gandhis, bright as Mother Teresas. Clear away everything that keeps you separate from this secret, luminous place. Believe that it exists, come to know it better, nurture it, share its fruits timelessly." - Author: George Saunders
