Famous quotes containing the word davis:

    While the light burning within may have been divine, the outer case of the lamp was assuredly cheap enough. Whitman was, from first to last, a boorish, awkward poseur.
    —Rebecca Harding Davis (1831–1910)

    To look back is to relax one’s vigil.

    Men insist that they don’t mind women succeeding so long as they retain their “femininity”. Yet the qualities that men consider “feminine”Mtimidity, submissiveness, obedience, silliness, and self-debasement—are the very qualities best guaranteed to assure the defeat of even the most gifted aspirant.
    —Elizabeth Gould Davis (b. 1910)
