Famous quotes containing the word peg:

    So much of the trouble is because I am a woman. To me it seems a very terrible thing to be a woman. There is one crown which perhaps is worth it all—a great love, a quiet home, and children. We all know that is all that is worthwhile, and yet we must peg away, showing off our wares on the market if we have money, or manufacturing careers for ourselves if we haven’t.
    Ruth Benedict (1887–1948)

    I tried to peg out soldierly,—no use!
    One dies of war like any old disease.
    Wilfred Owen (1893–1918)
