Famous quotes containing the word ladies:
“I went to a literary gathering once.... The place was filled with people who looked as if they had been scraped up out of drains. The ladies ran to draped plush dressesfor Art; to wreaths of silken flowerets in the hairfor Femininity; and, somewhere between the two adornments, to chain-drive pince-nezfor Astigmatism. The gentlemen were small and somewhat in need of dusting.”
—Dorothy Parker (18931967)
