Famous quotes containing the word mendel:

    For a woman to get a rewarding sense of total creation by way of the multiple monotonous chores that are her daily lot would be as irrational as for an assembly line worker to rejoice that he had created an automobile because he tightened a bolt.
    —Edith Mendel Stern (1901–1975)
