Famous quotes containing the words women, churchill and/or cup:

    When women kiss it always reminds one of prize-fighters shaking hands.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    The latest refinements of science are linked with the cruelties of the Stone Age.
    —Winston Churchill (1874–1965)

    I write mainly for the kindly race of women. I am their sister, and in no way exempt from their sorrowful lot. I have drank [sic] the cup of their limitations to the dregs, and if my experience can help any sad or doubtful woman to outleap her own shadow, and to stand bravely out in the sunshine to meet her destiny, whatever it may be, I shall have done well; I have not written this book in vain.
    Amelia E. Barr (1831–1919)
