“Mildred Pierce: You look down on me because I work for a living, dont you? You always have. All right, I work. I cook food and sell it and make a profit on it, which, I might point out, youre not too proud to share with me.
Monte Beragon: Yes, I take money from you, Mildred. But not enough to make me like kitchens or cooks. They smell of grease.
Mildred Pierce: I dont notice you shrinking away from a fifty- dollar bill because it smells of grease.”

“Mothers seem to be in subtle competition with teachers. There is always an underlying fear that teachers will do a better job than they have done with their child.... But mostly mothers feel that their areas of competence are very much similar to those of the teacher. In fact they feel they know their child better than anyone else and that the teacher doesnt possess any special field of authority or expertise.”
—Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)
“We cannot discuss the state of our minorities until we first have some sense of what we are, who we are, what our goals are, and what we take life to be. The question is not what we can do now for the hypothetical Mexican, the hypothetical Negro. The question is what we really want out of life, for ourselves, what we think is real.”
—James Baldwin (19241987)
