Famous quotes containing the words cake and/or carrot:

    Much of the ill-tempered railing against women that has characterized the popular writing of the last two years is a half-hearted attempt to find a way back to a more balanced relationship between our biological selves and the world we have built. So women are scolded both for being mothers and for not being mothers, for wanting to eat their cake and have it too, and for not wanting to eat their cake and have it too.
    Margaret Mead (1901–1978)

    You ask “What is life?” That is the same as asking “What is a carrot?” A carrot is a carrot and we know nothing more.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
