Famous quotes containing the words drives and/or tape:

    Such joint ownership creates a place where mothers can “father” and fathers can “mother.” It does not encourage mothers and fathers to compete with one another for “first- place parent.” Such competition is not especially good for marriage and furthermore drives kids nuts.

    Chose a free one. But since I’ve been
    Repeatedly billed for my free tape.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
