Famous quotes containing the word involved:

    The indications are that swearing preceded the development of cursing. That is, expletives, maledictions, exclamations, and imprecations of the immediately explosive or vituperative kind preceded the speechmaking and later rituals involved in the deliberate apportioning of the fate of an enemy. Swearing of the former variety is from the lips only, but the latter is from the heart. Damn it! is not that same as Damn you!
    Ashley Montagu (b. 1905)

    Once you are involved in politics, the most difficult thing is to go for hang [be sentenced to death]....We can’t cry over what has happened to us because other people suffer lots more than we suffer.... until you are killed, you can’t say that you have really suffered.
    Ela Ramgobin (b. 1941)

    Men perceive that equating love and domestic work is a trap. They fear that to get involved with housework would send them hurtling into the bottomless pit of self-sacrifice that is women’s current caring roles.
    Debbie Taylor (20th century)
