Honor Code

Famous quotes containing the words honor and/or code:

    We honor motherhood with glowing sentimentality, but we don’t rate it high on the scale of creative occupations.
    Leontine Young (20th century)

    Many people will say to working mothers, in effect, “I don’t think you can have it all.” The phrase for “have it all” is code for “have your cake and eat it too.” What these people really mean is that achievement in the workplace has always come at a price—usually a significant personal price; conversely, women who stayed home with their children were seen as having sacrificed a great deal of their own ambition for their families.
    Anne C. Weisberg (20th century)
