Famous quotes by anna quindlen:

    If you want something, it will elude you. If you do not want something, you will get ten of it in the mail.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    The reason child care is such a loaded issue is that when we talk about it, we are always tacitly talking about motherhood. And when we’re talking about motherhood we’re always tacitly assuming that child care must be a very dim second to full-time mother care.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    There is little premium in poetry in a world that thinks of Pound and Whitman as a weight and a sampler, not an Ezra, a Walt, a thing of beauty, a joy forever.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
