Who is victoria gray?

Famous quotes containing the words gray and/or victoria:

    Remember? We sat on a slab of rock.
    From this distance in time,
    it seems the color
    of iris, rotting and turning purpler,

    but it was only
    the usual gray rock
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    Sometimes my wife complains that she’s overwhelmed with work and just can’t take one of the kids, for example, to a piano lesson. I’ll offer to do it for her, and then she’ll say, “No, I’ll do it.” We have to negotiate how much I trespass into that mother role—it’s not given up easily.
    —Anonymous Father. As quoted in Women and Their Fathers, by Victoria Secunda, ch. 3 (1992)
