Famous quotes containing the words highways and/or major:

    That is the land of lost content
    I see it shining plain,
    The happy highways where I went
    And cannot come again.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)

    No culture on earth outside of mid-century suburban America has ever deployed one woman per child without simultaneously assigning her such major productive activities as weaving, farming, gathering, temple maintenance, and tent-building. The reason is that full-time, one-on-one child-raising is not good for women or children.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)
