Quote of the Day

If a woman has her Ph.D. in physics, has mastered quantum theory, plays flawless Chopin, was once a cheerleader, and is now married to a man who plays baseball, she will forever be “former cheerleader married to star athlete.”

Maryanne Ellison Simmons, wife of Milwaukee Brewers’ catcher Ted Simmons, quoted in Ann B. Dobie. Theory into practice. An Introduction to Literary Criticism. London: Thomason, 2002. 97.
