Famous quotes containing the words phyllis mcginley and/or mcginley:

    Kindness is a virtue neither modern nor urban. One almost unlearns it in a city. Towns have their own beatitude; they are not unfriendly; they offer a vast and solacing anonymity or an equally vast and solacing gregariousness. But one needs a neighbor on whom to practice compassion.
    Phyllis McGinley (1905–1978)

    Sisters are always drying their hair.
    Locked into rooms, alone,
    They pose at the mirror, shoulders bare,
    Trying this way and that their hair,
    Or fly importunate down the stair
    To answer the telephone.
    —Phyllis McGinley (1905–1978)
