Construct

Famous quotes containing the word construct:

    We construct our life for one person and, when finally we are ready to receive that person in our life, she does not come, then dies in our eyes and we live as prisoners of that which was meant only for her.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    The fact that we are all trained to be mothers from infancy on means that we are all trained to devote our lives to men, whether they are our sons or not; that we are all trained to force other women to exemplify the lack of qualities which characterizes the cultural construct of femininity.
    Andrea Dworkin (b. 1946)

    Rather,
    they gather the blue
    objects of the world
    and construct from them

    a nest—
    James Tate (b. 1943)
