Quote by James Tobin
After the United States entered the war, I joined the Naval Reserve and spent ninety days in a Columbia University dormitory learning to be a naval officer.
This quote implies that, following the United States' entry into the war, the speaker enlisted in the Naval Reserve and underwent a training program at Columbia University to become a naval officer. The "ninety days in a Columbia University dormitory" suggests an intensive and condensed training program, emphasizing the speaker's commitment and dedication to serve in the military. It highlights the speaker's willingness to adapt and make sacrifices to contribute to the war effort.
It would be a thousand pities if women wrote like men, or lived like men, or looked like men, for if two sexes are quite inadequate, considering the vastness and variety of the world, how should we manage with one only? Ought not education to bring out and fortify the differences rather than the similarities? For we have too much likeness as it is, and if an explorer should come back and bring word of other sexes looking through the branches of other trees at other skies, nothing would be of greater service to humanity; and we should have the immense pleasure into the bargain of watching Professor X rush for his measuring-rods to prove himself superior.
