Famous quotes containing the words devices and/or hip:

    The relationship between mother and professional has not been a partnership in which both work together on behalf of the child, in which the expert helps the mother achieve her own goals for her child. Instead, professionals often behave as if they alone are advocates for the child; as if they are the guardians of the child’s needs; as if the mother left to her own devices will surely damage the child and only the professional can rescue him.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)

    four-inch and stainless steel,
    and think of my hip where it lay
    for four years like a darkness.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
