-Louisa May Alcott
Engrave this Quote The obvious and fair solution to the housework problem is to let men do the housework for, say, the next six thousand years, to even things up. The trouble is that men, over the years, have developed an inflated notion of the importance of everything they do, so that before long they would turn housework into just as much of a charade as business is now. They would hire secretaries and buy computers and fly off to housework conferences in Bermuda, but they'd never clean anything.

Engrave this Quote My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint.

Engrave this Quote Housework is a treadmill from futility to oblivion with stop-offs at tedium and counter productivity.

Engrave this Quote My theory on housework is, if the item doesn't multiply, smell, catch on fire or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one cares. Why should you?

Engrave this Quote Dusting is a good example of the futility of trying to put things right. As soon as you dust, the fact of your next dusting has already been established.

Engrave this Quote I make no secret of the fact that I would rather lie on a sofa than sweep beneath it. But you have to be efficient if you're going to be lazy.

Engrave this Quote Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.

Engrave this Quote The suburban housewife -- she was the dream image of the young American women and the envy, it was said, of women all over the world. The American housewife -- freed by science and labor-saving appliances from the drudgery, the dangers of childbirth, and the illnesses of her grandmother had found true feminine fulfillment.

Engrave this Quote The labor of women in the house, certainly, enables men to produce more wealth than they otherwise could; and in this way women are economic factors in society. But so are horses.

Engrave this Quote Now, as always, the most automated appliance in a household is the mother.

Engrave this Quote Perhaps all artists were, in a sense, housewives: tenders of the earth household.

-Erica Jong
Engrave this Quote You all know that even when women have full rights, they still remain fatally downtrodden because all housework is left to them. In most cases housework is the most unproductive, the most barbarous and the most arduous work a woman can do. It is exceptionally petty and does not include anything that would in any way promote the development of the woman.

-Lenin (Vladimir Ulyanov)
Engrave this Quote Each home has been reduced to the bare essentials -- to barer essentials than most primitive people would consider possible. Only one woman's hands to feed the baby, answer the telephone, turn off the gas under the pot that is boiling over, soothe the older child who has broken a toy, and open both doors at once. She is a nutritionist, a child psychologist, an engineer, a production manager, an expert buyer, all in one. Her husband sees her as free to plan her own time, and envies her; she sees him as having regular hours and envies him.

Engrave this Quote Housework is work directly opposed to the possibility of human self-actualization.

Engrave this Quote I hate housework! You make the beds, you do the dishes -- and six months later you have to start all over again.

Engrave this Quote For a woman to get a rewarding sense of total creation by way of the multiple monotonous chores that are her daily lot would be as irrational as for an assembly line worker to rejoice that he had created an automobile because he tightened a bolt.

Engrave this Quote When it comes to housework the one thing no book of household management can ever tell you is how to begin. Or maybe I mean why.
