Famous quotes containing the words ruth benedict and/or benedict:

    So much of the trouble is because I am a woman. To me it seems a very terrible thing to be a woman. There is one crown which perhaps is worth it all—a great love, a quiet home, and children. We all know that is all that is worthwhile, and yet we must peg away, showing off our wares on the market if we have money, or manufacturing careers for ourselves if we haven’t.
    Ruth Benedict (1887–1948)

    A man’s indebtedness ... is not virtue; his repayment is. Virtue begins when he dedicates himself actively to the job of gratitude.
    —Ruth Benedict (1887–1948)
