Famous quotes containing the words orphans and/or thirteen:
“My profession brought me in contact with various minds. Earnest, serious discussion on the condition of woman enlivened my business room; failures of banks, no dividends from railroads, defalcations of all kinds, public and private, widows and orphans and unmarried women beggared by the dishonesty, or the mismanagement of men, were fruitful sources of conversation; confidence in man as a protector was evidently losing ground, and women were beginning to see that they must protect themselves.”
—Harriot K. Hunt (18051875)
“The big mistake that men make is that when they turn thirteen or fourteen and all of a sudden theyve reached puberty, they believe that they like women. Actually, youre just horny. It doesnt mean you like women any more at twenty-one than you did at ten.”
—Jules Feiffer (b. 1929)
