Famous quotes containing the words women and/or orthodox:

    of artists dying in childbirth, wise-women charred at the stake,
    centuries of books unwritten piled behind these shelves;
    and we still have to stare into the absence
    of men who would not, women who could not, speak
    to our life—this still unexcavated hole
    called civilization, this act of translation, this half-world.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    The gloomy theology of the orthodox—the Calvinists—I do not, I cannot believe. Many of the notions—nay, most of the notions—which orthodox people have of the divinity of the Bible, I disbelieve. I am so nearly infidel in all my views, that too, in spite of my wishes, that none but the most liberal doctrines can command my assent.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
