Girls

Famous quotes containing the word girls:

    Because relationships are a primary source of self-esteem for girls and women, daughters need to know they will not lose our love if they speak up for what they want to tell us how they feel about things. . . . Teaching girls to make specific requests, rather than being indirect and agreeable, will help them avoid the pitfalls of having to be manipulative and calculating to get what they want.
    Jeanne Elium (20th century)

    An eminent teacher of girls said, “the idea of a girl’s education, is, whatever qualifies them for going to Europe.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Too many girls follow the line of least resistance—but a good line is hard to resist.
    Raoul Walsh, U.S. screenwriter. Frisco Doll (Mae West)
