Famous quotes containing the words hortense odlum and/or odlum:

    One of the greatest satisfactions one can ever have, comes from the knowledge that he can do some one thing superlatively well.
    Hortense Odlum (1892–?)

    Not rarely, and this is especially true of wives and mothers, the motive behind assuming a disproportionate share of work and responsibility is completely unselfish. We want to protect, to spare those of whom we are fond. We forget that, regardless of the motive, the results of such action are almost always destructive and unproductive.
    —Hortense Odlum (1892–?)
