Famous quotes containing the word office:
“Woman was originally the inventor, the manufacturer, the provider. She has allowed one office after another gradually to slip from her hand, until she retains, with loose grasp, only the so-called housekeeping.... Having thus given up one by one the occupations which required knowledge of materials and processes, and skill in using them ... she rightly feels that whats left is mere deadening drudgery.”
—Ellen Henrietta Swallow Richards (18421911)
