Drowned Girl

Famous quotes containing the words drowned and/or girl:

    Someone else drowned in that lash-wide stare,
    And me supposed to be ignorant,
    Or find it funny, or not to care....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    For every nineteenth-century middle-class family that protected its wife and child within the family circle, there was an Irish or a German girl scrubbing floors in that home, a Welsh boy mining coal to keep the home-baked goodies warm, a black girl doing the family laundry, a black mother and child picking cotton to be made into clothes for the family, and a Jewish or an Italian daughter in a sweatshop making “ladies” dresses or artificial flowers for the family to purchase.
    Stephanie Coontz (20th century)
