Balanced Gray

Famous quotes containing the words balanced and/or gray:

    Much of the ill-tempered railing against women that has characterized the popular writing of the last two years is a half-hearted attempt to find a way back to a more balanced relationship between our biological selves and the world we have built. So women are scolded both for being mothers and for not being mothers, for wanting to eat their cake and have it too, and for not wanting to eat their cake and have it too.
    Margaret Mead (1901–1978)

    In some unused lagoon, some nameless bay,
    On sluggish, lonesome waters, anchor’d near the shore,
    An old, dismasted, gray and batter’d ship, disabled, done,
    After free voyages to all the seas of earth, haul’d up at last and
    hawser’d tight,
    Lies rusting, mouldering.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
