Famous quotes containing the words contact and/or bottom:
“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)
“I am glad of this war. It kicks the pasteboard bottom in of the usual good popular novel. People have felt much more deeply and strongly these last few months.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
