Famous quotes containing the words baker and/or navy:

    Women will not advance except by joining together in cooperative action.... Unlike other groups, women do not need to set affiliation and strength in opposition one against the other.

    —Jean Baker Miller (20th century)

    There were gentlemen and there were seamen in the navy of Charles the Second. But the seamen were not gentlemen; and the gentlemen were not seamen.
    Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800–1859)
