“Laws, religions, creeds, and systems of ethics, instead of making *society* better than its best unit, make it worse than its average unit, because they are never up to date.”

—George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

“Some of the smartest women in the country said that they’re too embarrassed to attend their reunions at Harvard Business School if they have dropped out of the work force, left the fast track by choosing part-time work, or decided to follow anything other than the standard male career path.”

—Deborah J. *Swiss* (20th century)

“It is by a *mathematical* point only that we are wise, as the sailor or the fugitive slave keeps the polestar in his eye; but that is sufficient guidance for all our life. We may not arrive at our port within a calculable period, but we would preserve the true course.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
