Famous quotes containing the words page and/or jimmy:

    They who say that women do not desire the right of suffrage, that they prefer masculine domination to self-government, falsify every page of history, every fact in human experience. It has taken the whole power of the civil and canon law to hold woman in the subordinate position which it is said she willingly accepts.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)

    You’ve just fulfilled the first role of law enforcement. Make sure when your shift is over you go home alive.
