Famous quotes containing the words checks and/or gear:

    Old fools are babes again, and must be used
    With checks as flatteries.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    For women ... bras, panties, bathing suits, and other stereotypical gear are visual reminders of a commercial, idealized feminine image that our real and diverse female bodies can’t possibly fit.

    Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)
