Famous quotes containing the word making:

    Let a human being throw the energies of his soul into the making of something, and the instinct of workmanship will take care of his honesty.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)

    What stunned me was the regular assertion that feminists were “anti-family.” . . . It was motherhood that got me into the movement in the first place. I became an activist after recognizing how excruciatingly personal the political was to me and my sons. It was the women’s movement that put self-esteem back into “just a housewife,” rescuing our intelligence from the junk pile of “instinct” and making it human, deliberate, powerful.
    Mary Kay Blakely (20th century)

    They were making their way with the resigned expression of those who are condemned to hope forever.
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)
