Famous quotes containing the word domestic:

    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    Sarah M. Grimke (1792–1873)

    To meet the objections of some inveterate cavillers, I may as well state, that if I dined out occasionally, as I always had done, and I trust shall have opportunities to do again, it was frequently to the detriment of my domestic arrangements.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
