Famous quotes containing the word hearing:

    Recently we’ve been hearing a lot about women “having it all.” Myself, I think that is not really an accurate description of female lives today. It seems to me that what we have been up to is DOING it all.
    Sylvia Hewlett (20th century)

    Ah, Governor [Murphy, of New Jersey], don’t try to deceive me as to the sentiment of the dear people. I have been hearing from the West and the East, and the South seems to be the only section which approves of me at all, and that comes from merely a generous impulse, for even that section would deny me its votes.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    That myth—that image of the madonna-mother—has disabled us from knowing that, just as men are more than fathers, women are more than mothers. It has kept us from hearing their voices when they try to tell us their aspirations . . . kept us from believing that they share with men the desire for achievement, mastery, competence—the desire to do something for themselves.
    Lillian Breslow Rubin (20th century)
