Famous quotes containing the word february:

    If a man is a good lawyer, a good physician, a good engineer ... he may be a fool in every other capacity. But no deficiency or mistake of judgment is forgiven to a woman ... and should she fail anywhere, if she has any scientific attainment, or artistic faculty, instead of standing her interest as an excuse, it is censured as an aggravation and offence.
    E.P.P., U.S. women’s magazine contributor. The Una, p. 28 ( February 1855)

    In my experience, if you have to keep the lavatory door shut by extending your left leg, it’s modern architecture.
    Nancy Banks-Smith, British columnist. Guardian (London, February 20, 1979)
