“Bewildering. If it was truly in woman’s nature to be an ever demure and pleasant sunbeam in the gloom, why then, it took an awful lot of ink and instructions to keep reminding woman of this nature of hers…”

― Evie Dunmore, A Rogue of One’s Own

“Oregon is demure, and lovely, and it ought to play a little hard to get.”

― Tom McCall

“most Americans think of Rosa Parks as a demur, pleasant-enough seamstress who backed into history by being too tired to get out of her seat on a bus one day, in reality she had been trained in nonviolence spirit and tactics at a famous institution, Highlander Folk School.

(23)”

― Mahatma Gandhi
