Contemporary

Famous quotes containing the word contemporary:

    The many faces of intimacy: the Victorians could experience it through correspondence, but not through cohabitation; contemporary men and women can experience it through fornication, but not through friendship.
    Thomas Szasz (b. 1920)

    I have the strong impression that contemporary middle-class women do seem prone to feelings of inadequacy. We worry that we do not measure up to some undefined level, some mythical idealized female standard. When we see some women juggling with apparent ease, we suspect that we are grossly inadequate for our own obvious struggles.
    Faye J. Crosby (20th century)

    A sort of war of revenge on the intellect is what, for some reason, thrives in the contemporary social atmosphere.
    Wyndham Lewis (1882–1957)
