Ladies

Famous quotes containing the word ladies:

    I know that you, ladies and gentlemen, have a philosophy, each and all of you, and that the most interesting and important thing about you is the way in which it determines the perspective in your several worlds.
    William James (1842–1910)

    Mixed dinner parties of ladies and gentlemen ... are very rare, which is a great defect in the society; not only as depriving them of the most social and hospitable manner of meeting, but as leading to frequent dinner parties of gentlemen without ladies, which certainly does not conduce to refinement.
    Frances Trollope (1780–1863)

    I don’t think the ladies in town accepted the fact that I worked. That was the point at which I said to myself, well, you’re always going to be out of step and you might as well face it.
    Ellen Rodgers (b. c. 1930)
