Allowed

Famous quotes containing the word allowed:

    The teller of a mirthful tale has latitude allowed him. We are content with less than absolute truth.
    Charles Lamb (1775–1834)

    Politics is still the man’s game. The women are allowed to do the chores, the dirty work, and now and then—but only occasionally—one is present at some secret conference or other. But it’s not the rule. They can go out and get the vote, if they can and will; they can collect money, they can be grateful for being permitted to work. But that is all.
    Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876–1958)

    Men are allowed to have passion and commitment for their work ... a woman is allowed that feeling for a man, but not her work.
    Barbra Streisand (b. 1942)
