West Performed

Famous quotes containing the words west and/or performed:

    Women born at the turn of the century have been conditioned not to speak openly of their wedding nights. Of other nights in bed with other men they speak not at all. Today a woman having bedded with a great general feels free to tell us that in bed the general could not present arms. Women of my generation would have spared the great general the revelation of this failure.
    —Jessamyn West (1907–1984)

    Ambition often puts Men upon doing the meanest offices; so climbing is performed in the same position with creeping.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)
