Famous quotes containing the word disabled:

    That myth—that image of the madonna-mother—has disabled us from knowing that, just as men are more than fathers, women are more than mothers. It has kept us from hearing their voices when they try to tell us their aspirations . . . kept us from believing that they share with men the desire for achievement, mastery, competence—the desire to do something for themselves.
    Lillian Breslow Rubin (20th century)

    We are the trade union for pensioners and children, the trade union for the disabled and the sick ... the trade union for the nation as a whole.
    Edward Heath (b. 1916)

    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)
