Text Quotes
Nobody gets to grow old in the America they grew up in  (Gail Collins Quotes) Until Eleanor Roosevelt, there was only one or two First Ladies in all of American history who made an impact, who people could even have recognized or identified. And it’s really only been since Jackie Kennedy that there’s been this idea that the family life of the president is such a central thing  (Gail Collins Quotes) When the simple word processors came in, writing became crisper, less dense - just because of the way we could instantly edit on the screen. Now the ability to mash up words and pictures and links and songs and tweets is what matters. I can’t imagine what writing will be like in 2154  (Gail Collins Quotes) When the women’s movement began, it was a middle-class phenomenon. Certainly, black women had other stuff to think about in the 60s besides a women’s movement. Working-class women were slow to get into it  (Gail Collins Quotes) You know, I have a lot of books on my iPad, but when I try to read them, I find myself wandering off to play games. Those are books I’m interested in. I can’t imagine what would have happened to me in college if my biology class had been on the same computer as ‘Words With Friends’ and ‘Doom.’  (Gail Collins Quotes) Now my poor hometown is being castigated as the center of an IRS scandal. Humble workers at the Cincinnati office targeted Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations for special scrutiny when those groups applied for tax-exempt status. There’s no conceivable excuse for that. It was deeply, deeply wrong  (Gail Collins Quotes) This is America, and we don’t restrict our battles over people’s sex lives to 11 months a year  (Gail Collins Quotes) [Ella Baker]’s second defining characteristic was her dislike of top-down leadership... ‘She felt leaders were not appointed but the rose up. Someone will rise. Someone will emerge’. It was an attitude Baker shared with some of the older women in the movement  (Gail Collins Quotes) Lobbyists really are experts in their fields and know what they are talking about. That’s why the government always listens to them as they tell the government what it’s doing wrong and what it should be doing instead  (Gail Collins Quotes) How do you give smart, accomplished, ambitious women the same opportunities as men to reach their goals? What about universal preschool and after-school programs? What about changing the corporate mind-set about the time commitment it takes to move up the ladder? What about having more husbands step up and take the major load?  (Gail Collins Quotes) You know what Americans are really sensitive to? Issues of fairness. I think this is a modern phenomenon, born of the civil rights movement. Once you convince Americans that something is basically unfair, you’ve got a winning cause.  (Gail Collins Quotes) There’s more student debt than credit card debt! Everywhere I go, I run into young people trying to build careers while they keep shelling out money on their education loans. If the economy is looking for a new generation of home-buyers, I can’t imagine they’ll get it from these folks  (Gail Collins Quotes) There have been tons of politicians who were slow to accept equal rights when it meant changes in the established social order. Many eventually came around, admitted they were wrong, and were forgiven. But the ones who actively choose hate-mongering don’t ever get a pass  (Gail Collins Quotes) Once you’re done being president, you tend to want to defend your record more than plumb your inner feelings. I find it hard to imagine Obama going home at night and writing sensitive, introspective journal entries about his meeting with John Boehner  (Gail Collins Quotes) One line I’d draw would be on raising the eligibility age for Social Security and Medicare. It sounds fair, since people are living longer. But it isn’t. Lower income workers are the ones who find it hardest to keep working after 65. And they’ll get penalized with lower benefits  (Gail Collins Quotes) Sarah Palin is an heir to the women’s movement. She has not been constrained by gender. At no point in her life has she thought, ‘I can’t do that because I’m a woman.’  (Gail Collins Quotes) Take Hispanic voters. They favor Democrats because they like the party’s programs, from health care reform to government spending on education. It’s not because the Republicans don’t have a big enough Office of Hispanic Outreach  (Gail Collins Quotes) Texas has no income tax, which is a big draw for corporate executives who do business there. But it’s hardly tax-free. The property taxes are high for a Southern state. The sales taxes are high. One study found that the bottom 20 percent of the Texas population pays 12 percent of its income in state and local taxes  (Gail Collins Quotes) The high point was that the people are really nice - despite the crazy politics - and I loved being there. The hardest part was knowing some of the things I was probably going to write about Texas would make those nice people very unhappy  (Gail Collins Quotes) The IRS targeting certain groups for harassment because of their politics would be unfair. If we found out the NSA was keeping special tabs on everyone who worshiped at a mosque or took a Bible trip through the Middle East, you’d have an uprising  (Gail Collins Quotes) The middle of ‘America’s Women’ is about the Civil War, and how women, black and white, confronted slavery and abolition. As in every other period of crisis, the rules of sexual decorum were suspended due to emergency  (Gail Collins Quotes) The whole student loan thing drives me completely nuts. If it wasn’t possible for 18-year-olds to sign themselves up for tens of thousands of dollars in debt in order to pay their college bills, the state governments wouldn’t have found it so politically easy to cut taxpayer support for public colleges and universities  (Gail Collins Quotes) There are competing studies on how much crime drops or doesn’t drop when there are strict rules on gun possession and sale. I don’t think there’s any question that New York City’s very tough laws have reduced violence  (Gail Collins Quotes) The history of American women is all about leaving home - crossing oceans and continents, or getting jobs and living on their own.  (Gail Collins Quotes) Once when I was working for the Daily News, I was summoned back to work from vacation because Donald Trump announced he was getting a divorce.  (Gail Collins Quotes) I’m being driven crazy by people who are obsessed with limiting the scope of government, but feel perfectly free to demand that government get involved in women’s most personal choices.  (Gail Collins Quotes) Despite my excellent mood, I don’t have any sympathy for Romney. If he’d been a good candidate he wouldn’t have had a different campaign for every month on the calendar.  (Gail Collins Quotes) For the undocumented immigrants, the big priority is just to get out from the shadows, be able to get a driver’s license, buy an airplane ticket and stop worrying about sudden deportation. But for the country as a whole, it’s crucial that everybody have a citizen’s stake in the nation’s welfare.  (Gail Collins Quotes) You reduce illegal immigration by making it harder to get jobs here, or easier to get jobs south of the border. This idea that we can’t pass an immigration law until we hit some imaginary security target is just a way to derail reform.  (Gail Collins Quotes) I’m sort of suspicious of most economic development projects, but the ones that encourage taxpayer-funded relocation bidding wars should be declared unconstitutional.  (Gail Collins Quotes)
