Quotations About / On: SHOPPING
...I've found out it's fun to go shopping. It's such a feminine thing to do.
(Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962), U.S. actor. As quoted in Ms. magazine, p. 41 (August 1972).
Raised in very modest circumstances, Monroe had recently gained fame and wealth as a movie actress.)
The last job I had, I had to take it out in trade and this is no butcher shopnot yet, anyhow!
(Robert Pirosh, U.S. screenwriter, George Seaton, George Oppenheimer, and Sam Wood. Dr. Hugo Z. Hackenbush (Groucho Marx), A Day at the Races, informing Mrs. Upjohn (Margaret Dumont) that he's going to be paid one way or another for running the sanitarium (1937).)
It was the first female-style revolution: no violence and we all went shopping.
(Gloria Steinem (b. 1934), U.S. feminist, author, and editor. As quoted in Newsweek, p. 19 (December 18, 1989).
On the dismantling of the Berlin Wall, which had occurred in the previous month. Within a year, East and West Berlin were officially rejoined.)
In an age robbed of religious symbols, going to the shops replaces going to the church.... We have a free choice, but at a price. We can win experience, but never achieve innocence. Marx knew that the epic activities of the modern world involve not lance and sword but dry goods.
