Famous quotes containing the words bone and/or loss:

    We as women know that there are no disembodied processes; that all history originates in human flesh; that all oppression is inflicted by the body of one against the body of another; that all social change is built on the bone and muscle, and out of the flesh and blood, of human creators.
    Andrea Dworkin (b. 1946)

    A gain is no joy, nor a loss any grief.
    Chinese proverb.
