Famous quotes containing the words major and/or legislation:

    No culture on earth outside of mid-century suburban America has ever deployed one woman per child without simultaneously assigning her such major productive activities as weaving, farming, gathering, temple maintenance, and tent-building. The reason is that full-time, one-on-one child-raising is not good for women or children.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)

    The wise know that foolish legislation is a rope of sand, which perishes in the twisting.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
