Famous quotes containing the words career and/or college:

    What exacerbates the strain in the working class is the absence of money to pay for services they need, economic insecurity, poor daycare, and lack of dignity and boredom in each partner’s job. What exacerbates it in upper-middle class is the instability of paid help and the enormous demands of the career system in which both partners become willing believers. But the tug between traditional and egalitarian models of marriage runs from top to bottom of the class ladder.
    Arlie Hochschild (20th century)

    A college of wit-crackers cannot flout me out of my humor. Dost thou think I care for a satire or an epigram?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
