Masculine

Famous quotes containing the word masculine:

    Our mother gives us our earliest lessons in love—and its partner, hate. Our father—our “second other”Melaborates on them. Offering us an alternative to the mother-baby relationship . . . presenting a masculine model which can supplement and contrast with the feminine. And providing us with further and perhaps quite different meanings of lovable and loving and being loved.
    Judith Viorst (20th century)

    ... no woman is really an insider in the institutions fathered by masculine consciousness.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    I took the standpoint that the profession of technologist, a man who masters matter, is a masculine profession, if not the only masculine profession there is.
    Max Frisch (1911–1991)
