Famous quotes containing the words blocks, west and/or wing:

    The Bible and the Church have been the greatest stumbling blocks in the way of women’s emancipation.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)

    Women born at the turn of the century have been conditioned not to speak openly of their wedding nights. Of other nights in bed with other men they speak not at all. Today a woman having bedded with a great general feels free to tell us that in bed the general could not present arms. Women of my generation would have spared the great general the revelation of this failure.
    —Jessamyn West (1907–1984)

    I come to one bush of berries so ripe it is a bush of flies,
    Hanging their bluegreen bellies and their wing panes in a Chinese
    screen.
    The honey-feast of the berries has stunned them; they believe in
    heaven.
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)
