Famous quotes containing the word earned:

    I have not earned what I have already enjoyed.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The theory [before the twentieth century] ... was that all the jobs in the world belonged by right to men, and that only men were by nature entitled to wages. If a woman earned money, outside domestic service, it was because some misfortune had deprived her of masculine protection.
    Rheta Childe Dorr (1866–1948)

    People who give us their full confidence believe that they have thereby earned a right to ours. This is a fallacy; one does not acquire rights through gifts.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
