Famous quotes containing the words training and/or transfer:

    I am not a suffragist, nor do I believe in “careers” for women, especially a “career” in factory and mill where most working women have their “careers.” A great responsibility rests upon woman—the training of children. This is her most beautiful task.
    Mother Jones (1830–1930)

    Max Weber (1864–1920)
