Mummy

Famous quotes containing the word mummy:

    I have mummy truths to tell
    Whereat the living mock,
    Though not for sober ear,
    For maybe all that hear
    Should laugh and weep an hour upon the clock.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    If God lets me live, I shall attain more than Mummy ever has done, I shall not remain insignificant, I shall work in the world and for mankind!
    Anne Frank (1929–1945)

    I must work, so as not to be a fool, to get on, to become a journalist, because that’s what I want!... I can’t imagine that I would have to lead the same sort of life as Mummy ... and all the women who do their work and are then forgotten. I must have something besides a husband and children, something that I can devote myself to!
    Anne Frank (1929–1945)
