Famous quotes containing the words john and/or baker:

    When John Henry was a little fellow,
    You could hold him in the palm of your hand,
    He said to his pa, “When I grow up
    I’m gonna be a steel-driving man.
    Gonna be a steel-driving man.”
    —Unknown. John Henry (l. 1–5)

    All of the valuable qualities ... like helping in the development of others—will not get you to the top at General Motors, were that path open to women.... The characteristics most highly developed in women and perhaps most essential to human beings are the very characteristics that are specifically dysfunctional for success in the world as it is.... They may, however, be the important ones for making the world different.
    —Jean Baker Miller (20th century)
