Famous quotes containing the word pretty:

    ... instead of being a help meet to man, in the highest, noblest sense of the term, as a companion, a co-worker, an equal; she has been a mere appendage of his being, an instrument of his convenience and pleasure, the pretty toy with which he wiled [sic] away his leisure moments, or the pet animal whom he humored into playfulness and submission.
    Angelina Grimké (1805–1879)

    Deep down, I’m pretty superficial.

    Joycelyn Elders (b. 1933)
