Famous quotes containing the words cash and/or norm:

    Lora May: Did you ever stop to think, Porter, that in over three years there’s one word we’ve never said to each other, even in fun.
    Porter: To you, I’m a cash register. You can’t love a cash register.
    Lora May: And I’m part of your inventory. You can’t love that either.
    Joseph L. Mankiewicz (1909–1993)

    As long as male behavior is taken to be the norm, there can be no serious questioning of male traits and behavior. A norm is by definition a standard for judging; it is not itself subject to judgment.
