Bar

Famous quotes containing the word bar:

    ‘Yes; quaint and curious war is!
    You shoot a fellow down
    You’d treat if met where any bar is,
    Or help to half-a-crown.’
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    The bar is the male kingdom. For centuries it was the bastion of male privilege, the gathering place for men away from their women, a place where men could go to freely indulge in The Bull Session ... the release of the guilty anxiety of the oppressor class.
    Shulamith Firestone (b. 1945)

    They made a paction tween them twa,
    They made it firm and sure,
    That the first word whaeer shoud speak,
    Shoud rise and bar the door.
    —Unknown. Get Up and Bar the Door (l. 13–16)
