Famous quotes containing the words center and/or vines:

    Everything that explains the world has in fact explained a world that does not exist, a world in which men are at the center of the human enterprise and women are at the margin “helping” them. Such a world does not exist—never has.

    slapping my face lightly, soundless merriment
    in the gesticulations of shirtsleeves ...
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
