Underground Work Women Convention

Famous quotes containing the words convention, women, underground and/or work:

    Every one knows about the young man who falls in love with the chorus-girl because she can kick his hat off, and his sister’s friends can’t or won’t. But the youth who marries her, expecting that all her departures from convention will be as agile or as delightful to him as that, is still the classic example of folly.
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)

    In the adjustment of the new order of things, we women demand an equal voice; we shall accept nothing less.
    Carrie Chapman Catt (1859–1947)

    An underground grower, blind and a common brown;
    Got a misshapen look, it’s nudged where it could;
    Simple as soil yet crowded as earth with all.
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)

    The truth is, the Science of Nature has been already too long made only a work of the brain and the fancy: It is now high time that it should return to the plainness and soundness of observations on material and obvious things.
    Robert Hooke (1635–1703)
