Famous quotes containing the word services:
“Men will say that in supporting their wives, in furnishing them with houses and food and clothes, they are giving the women as much money as they could ever hope to earn by any other profession. I grant it; but between the independent wage-earner and the one who is given his keep for his services is the difference between the free-born and the chattel.”
—Elizabeth M. Gilmer (18611951)
“True love ennobles and dignifies the material labors of life; and homely services rendered for loves sake have in them a poetry that is immortal.”
—Harriet Beecher Stowe (18111896)
“I see this evident, that we willingly accord to piety only the services that flatter our passions.”
—Michel de Montaigne (15331592)
