Magazine

Magazines, periodicals, glossies or serials are publications that are printed with ink on paper, generally published on a regular schedule and contain a variety of content.

Famous quotes containing the word magazine:

    I have been searching history to see if really a woman has any precedent to claim the right to have her rights, and I am compelled to say that we men are not so much ahead of women after all, and the only way we have kept our reputation up is by keeping her down—and don’t you forget it!
    George E. Foster, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. The Woman’s Magazine, pp. 38-41 (October 1886)

    It is as often a weakness in the aged to dictate to the young, as it is folly in the young to slight the warnings of the aged.
    H., U.S. women’s magazine contributor. American Ladies Magazine, pp. 230-3 (May 1828)

    It is as absurd to say that [due to motherhood] all women shall be denied the suffrage, as it would be to deny all men the suffrage, because some are liable, periodically, to inflammatory rheumatism, delirium tremens, or financial failure.
    Anonymous, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. The Revolution (February 17, 1870)
