Famous quotes containing the words club and/or book:

    I spoke at a woman’s club in Philadelphia yesterday and a young lady said to me afterwards, “Well, that sounds very nice, but don’t you think it is better to be the power behind the throne?” I answered that I had not had much experience with thrones, but a woman who has been on a throne, and who is now behind it, seems to prefer to be on the throne.
    Anna Howard Shaw (1847–1919)

    A book is a mirror: if an ape looks into it an apostle is hardly likely to look out.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)
