Famous quotes containing the word magazine:

    Business is, emphatically, the amusement of Americans, and, to be in keeping with their character, every thing written for their amusement should partake of the useful.
    H., U.S. women’s magazine contributor. American Ladies Magazine (February 1828)

    It is as absurd to say that [due to motherhood] all women shall be denied the suffrage, as it would be to deny all men the suffrage, because some are liable, periodically, to inflammatory rheumatism, delirium tremens, or financial failure.
    Anonymous, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. The Revolution (February 17, 1870)

    Vanity—has brought more virtues to an untimely end than any other vice.
    Anonymous, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. Weekly Visitor or Ladies Miscellany, p. 211 (April 1803)
