Famous quotes containing the word magazine:

    You don’t know what you might be if you would look beyond the ball, the opera, the fashion-plate—and right over the heads of the perfumed, mustached bipeds who call themselves men and worship at your feet.
    Mattie Chappelle, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. The Revolution (April 28, 1870)

    The intent of matrimony, is not for man and wife to be always taken up with each other, but jointly to discharge the duties of civil society, to govern their family with prudence, and educate their children with discretion.
    Anonymous, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. Weekly Visitor or Ladies Miscellany (June 1807)

    True love never goes without respect; and its counterfeit is often obliged to feign it, till an occasion serves to throw it out of the windows.
    Anonymous, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. Weekly Visitor or Ladies Miscellany, p. 211 (April 1803)
