Famous quotes containing the words life and/or personal:

    Art is only a means to life, to the life more abundant. It is not in itself the life more abundant. It merely points the way, something which is overlooked not only by the public, but very often by the artist himself. In becoming an end it defeats itself.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)

    ... feminism is a political term and it must be recognized as such: it is political in women’s terms. What are these terms?

    Anica Vesel Mander, U.S. author and feminist, and Anne Kent Rush (b. 1945)
