Famous quotes containing the word domestic:

    The most domestic cat, which has lain on a rug all her days, appears quite at home in the woods, and, by her sly and stealthy behavior, proves herself more native there than the regular inhabitants.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    ... feminism is a political term and it must be recognized as such: it is political in women’s terms. What are these terms? Essentially it means making connections: between personal power and economic power, between domestic oppression and labor exploitation, between plants and chemicals, feelings and theories; it means making connections between our inside worlds and the outside world.
    Anica Vesel Mander, U.S. author and feminist, and Anne Kent Rush (b. 1945)

    Let me obtain forgiveness of thee, Samson,
    Afford me place to shew what recompence
    Towards thee I intend for what I have misdone,
    Misguided; only what remains past cure
    Bear not too sensibly, nor still insist
    To afflict thy self in vain: though sight be lost,
    Life yet hath many solaces, enjoy’d
    Where other senses want not their delights
    At home in leisure and domestic ease,
    John Milton (1608–1674)
