Famous quotes containing the word rubin:
“Indeed, it is that ambiguity and ambivalence which often is so puzzling in womenthe quality of shifting from child to woman, the seeming helplessness one moment and the utter self-reliance the next that baffle us, that seem most difficult to understand. These are the qualities that make her a mystery, the qualities that provoked Freud to complain, What does a woman want?”
