[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.]

"If all of us in the world just shared love, just a little, charity foundations wouldnt be needed."

Alec Mackaye Quotes

"In the land of the rejected, the field is flattened, open to much oppurtunity. Here flourish the weeds and nonstandard quality alike. No one aspires, because there is no pinnacle to reach — just be better than whoever is next to you. It is basic, fundamental, and often rude, with bonus points for creative solution. Hardly ever about who you are, but how you do, its "run what you brung" not Formula 1."

Quotes About Sorry For Mistakes

"At least I was capable of knowing there was some other kind of life possible, even if I was having trouble achieving it. They believed that the way they were living was the only kind of life that existed. They had no imagination to envision anything else, and no desire to reach it. I felt sorry for them. I still do sometimes, although that doesnt mean their constant idiocy isnt capable of driving me to the brink of madness. They never have learned from their mistakes. It would probably be easier on everyone if I stopped expecting them to." - Author: Damien Echols

Quotes About Sunflower Seeds

"The new country lay open before me: there were no fences in those days, and I could choose my own way over the grass uplands, trusting the pony to get me home again. Sometimes I followed the sunflower-bordered roads. Fuchs told me that the sunflowers were introduced into that country by the Mormons; that at the time of the persecution when they left Missouri and struck out into the wilderness to find a place where they could worship God in their own way, the members of the first exploring party, crossing the plains to Utah, scattered sunflower seeds as they went. The next summer, when the long trains of wagons came through with all the women and children, they had a sunflower trail to follow. I believe that botanists do not confirm Jakes story but, insist that the sunflower was native to those plains. Nevertheless, that legend has stuck in my mind, and sunflower-bordered roads always seem to me the roads to freedom." - Author: Willa Cather

Quotes About Parallelogram

"Ah! said Michel, tempted, you have modern poems? Of course. For instance, Martillacs Electric Harmonies, which won a prize last year from the Academic of Sciences, and Monsieur de Pulfasses Meditations on Oxygen; and we have the Poetic Parallelogram, and even the Decarbonated Odes. . .Michel couldnt bear hearing another word and found himself outside again, stupefied and overcome. Not even this tiny amount of art had escaped the pernicious influence of the age! Science, Chemistry, Mechanics had invaded the realm of poetry! And such things are read, he murmured as he hurried through the streets, perhaps even bought! And signed by the authors and placed on the shelves marked Literature. But not one copy of Balzac, not one work by Victor Hugo! Where can I find such things-where, if not the Library..." - Author: Jules Verne

Quotes About Los Angeles City

"He had a theory about it. It happened, and re-happened, because it was a city uninterested in history. Strange things occurred precisely because there was no necessary regard for the past. The city lived in a sort of everyday present. It had no need to believe in itself as a London, or an Athens, or even a signifier of the New World, like a Sydney, or a Los Angeles. No, the city couldnt care less about where it stood. He had seen a t-shirt once that said: New York F***in City. As of it were the only place that ever existed and the only one that ever would." - Author: Mccann Colum
