Mcginley

Famous quotes containing the word mcginley:

    Sisters are always drying their hair.
    Locked into rooms, alone,
    They pose at the mirror, shoulders bare,
    Trying this way and that their hair,
    Or fly importunate down the stair
    To answer the telephone.
    —Phyllis McGinley (1905–1978)

    The Enemy, who wears
    Her mother’s usual face
    And confidential tone,
    Has access; doubtless stares
    Into her writing case
    And listens on the phone.
    —Phyllis McGinley (1905–1978)

    Oh high is the price of parenthood,
    And daughters may cost you double.
    You dare not forget, as you thought you could,
    That youth is a plague and a trouble.
    —Phyllis McGinley (20th century)
