Famous quotes containing the word gould:

    [Women’s] apparent endorsement of male supremacy is ... a pathetic striving for self- respect, self-justification, and self-pardon.

    —Elizabeth Gould Davis (b. 1910)

    Science is an integral part of culture. It’s not this foreign thing, done by an arcane priesthood. It’s one of the glories of the human intellectual tradition.
    —Stephen Jay Gould (b. 1941)
