Famous quotes containing the words victoria and/or ground:

    Sometimes my wife complains that she’s overwhelmed with work and just can’t take one of the kids, for example, to a piano lesson. I’ll offer to do it for her, and then she’ll say, “No, I’ll do it.” We have to negotiate how much I trespass into that mother role—it’s not given up easily.
    —Anonymous Father. As quoted in Women and Their Fathers, by Victoria Secunda, ch. 3 (1992)

    Just as the hand that strikes the ground cannot fail,
    So is the ruin certain of him who cherishes anger.
    Tiruvalluvar (c. 5th century A.D.)
