Famous quotes containing the words anna howard shaw, howard shaw, anna howard, howard and/or shaw:

    The abominable doctrine taught in the pulpit, the press, in books and elsewhere, is that the whole duty of women is self- abasement and self-sacrifice. I do not believe subjection is woman’s duty any more than it is the duty of a man to be under subjection to another man or many men. Women have the right of independence, of conscience, of will and of responsibility.
    Anna Howard Shaw (1847–1919)

    Think of submitting our measure to the advice of politicians! I would as soon submit the subject of the equality of a goose to a fox.
    —Anna Howard Shaw (1847–1919)

    [When asked: “If women voted, would they not have to sit on juries?”:] Many women would be glad of a chance to sit on anything. There are women who stand up and wash six days in the week at 75 cents a day who would like to take a vacation and sit on a jury at $1.50.
    Anna Howard Shaw (1847–1919)

    Cathleen: That’s Rhett Butler. He’s from Charleston. He has the most terrible reputation.
    Scarlett O’Hara: He looks as if, as if he knows what I look like without my shimmy.
    —Sidney Howard (1891–1939)

    As to spelling the very frequent word though with six letters instead of two, it is impossible to discuss it, as it is outside the range of common sanity. In comparison such a monstrosity as phlegm for flem is merely disgusting.
    —George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
