Of my two handicaps, being female put many more obstacles in my path than being black.
If I see a spider in my house, I put it in a cup, and then I take it outside. I save it. What is wrong with me?

Dreams become reality when we put our minds to it.
I demanded more rights for women because I know what women had to put up with.
Keyholes are the occasions of more sin and wickedness, than all other holes in this world put together.
On my income tax 1040 it says 'Check this box if you are blind.' I wanted to put a check mark about three inches away.
The great thing about the United States and the historically magnetic effect it has had on a lot of people like me is its generosity, to put it simply.
When I look back over my life it's almost as if there was a plan laid out for me - from the little girl who was so passionate about animals who longed to go to Africa and whose family couldn't afford to put her through college. Everyone laughed at my dreams. I was supposed to be a secretary in Bournemouth.
Sisters, when about their work, should not put on clothing which would make them look like images to frighten the crows from the corn. It is more gratifying to their husbands and children to see them in a becoming, well-fitting, attire, than it can be to merely visitors or strangers.
Ellen G. White
I think way back, the '20s or the '30s, when Kodak came out with the Brownie and they put a list of instructions on the box, like how to use this thing, I think someone arbitrarily said, 'Make sure the person in the photograph is smiling.'

Ninon de L'Enclos
He who wants to persuade should put his trust not in the right argument, but in the right word. The power of sound has always been greater than the power of sense.
I've got a real sense of three-dimensional geometry. I can look at a flat piece of fabric and know that if I put a slit in it and make some fabric travel around a square, then when you lift it up it will drape in a certain way, and I can feel how that will happen.
I bought a book of Mark Twain quotes. That's about my speed. I'll read a couple quotes and put it down.
No durable things are built on violent passion. Nature grows her plants in silence and in darkness, and only when they have become strong do they put their heads above the ground.
I'm an impatient person in many respects. I like to put myself in uncomfortable situations. It forces me to deliver.
