Famous quotes containing the words open and/or women:
“Its fairly obvious that American education is a cultural flop. Americans are not a well-educated people culturally, and their vocational education often has to be learned all over again after they leave school and college. On the other hand, they have open quick minds and if their education has little sharp positive value, it has not the stultifying effects of a more rigid training.”
—Raymond Chandler (18881959)
“The My Lai soldier lifts me up again and again
and lowers me down with the other dead women and babies
saying, Its my job. Its my job.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
