 Wellesley Commencement Address 1996: Nora Ephron
When we came to Wellesley in the fall of 1958, there was an article in the Harvard Crimson about the women's colleges, one of those stupid mean little articles full of stereotypes, like girls at Bryn Mawr wear fl.
Anyway, as I was saying, the Crimson had this snippy article which said that Wellesley was a school for tunicata -- tunicata apparently being small fish who spend the first part of their lives frantically swimming around the ocean floor exploring their environment, and the second part of their lives just lying there breeding.
When Elizabeth Dole pretends that she isn't serious about her career, that is an attack on you.

Southern Lady, Yankee Spy: The True Story of Elizabeth Van Lew, A Union Agent in the Heart of the Confederacy (Oxford University Press, October 2003) is the story of a woman who defied the conventions of the 19-century South.

 The Life of John Wesley by John Telford - Chapter 1
Bartholomew Wesley, his great-grandfather, was the son of Sir Herbert Wesley, of Westleigh, Devonshire, and Elizabeth de Wellesley, of Dangan, county Meath, in Ireland.
This young lady was the niece of Dr. Fuller, the Church historian, who describes her father “as a grave man, who would yet willingly contribute his shot of facetiousness on any just occasion.” He had been persecuted by Laud for preaching against Arminianism and the ceremonies.
John Wesley’s mother was therefore a lady both by birth and breeding,—a fact which must not be lost sight of in studying the character of her children.
