Charlotte Perkins Gilman Quotes



    • The mother as a social servant instead of a home servant will not lack in true mother duty....

    • There is no female mind. The brain is not an organ of sex. As well speak of a female liver.
    • To-day there is hardly a woman of intelligence in all America ... who is not definitely and actively concerned in some social interest, who does not recognize some duty besides those incident to her own blood relationship.

    • Only as we live, think, feel, and work outside the home, do we become humanly developed, civilized, socialized.
    • A million million worlds that move in peace; A million mighty laws that never cease; And one small ant-heap, hidden by small weeds, Rich with eggs, slaves and store of millet-seeds. They sleep beneath the sod And trust in God.
    • Said I, in scorn all burning hot, In rage and anger high, 'You ignominious idiot, Those wings are made to fly!'
    • I do not want to be a fly, I want to be a worm!
    • charlotte perkins gilman
