Henry David Thoreau

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Before I was married, I didn't consider my failure to manage even basic hand tools a feminist inadequacy. I thought it had more to do with being Jewish.

Robert De Niro

In my early 20s I was so miserable doing construction, I wanted something that paid money. I liked nice stuff. I liked cars and architecture, and things that cost money.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
