“Wi joy unfeigned brothers and sisters meet,
An each for others weelfare kindly spiers:
The social hours, swift-winged, unnoticed fleet;
Each tells the uncos that he sees or hears;
The parents, partial, eye their hopeful years;
Anticipation forward points the view:”
—Robert Burns (17591796)
“Women have the right to say: this is surface, this falsifies reality, this degrades.”
—Tillie Olsen (b. 1912)
