... in the minds of search committees there is the lingering question: Can she manage the football coach?
(Donna E. Shalala (b. 1941), U.S. educator and government official. As quoted in the New York Times, p. C4 (October 20, 1994).
At this time, Shalala was the U. S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, as well as the former Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin. She was speaking of the reluctance of University President search committees to select women candidates.)
A society that presumes a norm of violence and celebrates aggression, whether in the subway, on the football field, or in the conduct of its business, cannot help making celebrities of the people who would destroy it.
(Lewis H. Lapham (b. 1935), U.S. essayist, editor. "Citizen Goetz," Harper's (New York, March 1985).)
When the child is twelve, your wife buys her a splendidly silly article of clothing called a training bra. To train what? I never had a training jock. And believe me, when I played football, I could have used a training jock more than any twelve-year-old needs a training bra.
(Bill Cosby (20th century), U.S. comedian. Fatherhood, ch. 6 (1986).)
