Famous quotes containing the words woman and/or washington:

    I think being a woman is like being Irish.... Everyone says you’re important and nice, but you take second place all the same.
    Iris Murdoch (b. 1919)

    While I do not think it was so intended I have always been of the opinion that this turned out to be much the best for me. I had no national experience. What I have ever been able to do has been the result of first learning how to do it. I am not gifted with intuition. I need not only hard work but experience to be ready to solve problems. The Presidents who have gone to Washington without first having held some national office have been at great disadvantage.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)
