Famous quotes containing the words davis and/or joe:

    Men insist that they don’t mind women succeeding so long as they retain their “femininity”. Yet the qualities that men consider “feminine”Mtimidity, submissiveness, obedience, silliness, and self-debasement—are the very qualities best guaranteed to assure the defeat of even the most gifted aspirant.
    —Elizabeth Gould Davis (b. 1910)

    I do wish that as long as they are translating the thing, they would go right on ahead, while they’re at it, and translate Fedor Vasilyevich Protosov and Georgei Dmitrievich Abreskov and Ivan Petrovich Alexandrov into Joe and Harry and Fred.
    Dorothy Parker (1893–1967)
