Pane Quotations

The argument of the broken window pane is the most valuable argument in modern politics.
Emmeline Pankhurst

Many a doctrine is like a window pane. We see truth through it but it divides us from truth.
Khalil Gibran

What is sad for women of my generation is that they weren't supposed to work if they had families. What were they going to do when the children are grown - watch the raindrops coming down the window pane?
Jackie Kennedy

The traditional writer is a sensitive only child, asthmatic, who sits on the window seat watching the drops of rain slide down the pane, very introspective. I'm not inward-looking. I would never go to a shrink. I don't want to know what I'm thinking. I don't really like discussions in my family. It may be an avoidance thing.
Deborah Moggach

I want my prose to be as clear as a pane of glass.
Tracy Kidder
