Famous quotes containing the word movement:
“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 womens 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)
“For what we call illusions are often, in truth, a wider vision of past and present realitiesa willing movement of a mans soul with the larger sweep of the worlds forcesa movement towards a more assured end than the chances of a single life.”
—George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)
“She had to lean away.
She dared not stir a foot,
Lest movement should provoke
The demon of pursuit
That slumbers in a brute.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
