Magazine

Magazines, periodicals, glossies or serials are publications that are printed with ink on paper, generally published on a regular schedule and contain a variety of content.

Famous quotes containing the word magazine:

    The ease with which problems are understood and solved on paper, in books and magazine articles, is never matched by the reality of the mother’s experience. . . . Her child’s behavior often does not follow the storybook version. Her own feelings don’t match the way she has been told she ought to feel. . . . There is something wrong with either her child or her, she thinks. Either way, she accepts the blame and guilt.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)

    O, woman! blinded by custom, look forth upon the world with your own eyes, and see ... things as they are. Consult yourself instead of man,... for in cultivating your own individuality, you are gliding into your true position in society.
    Harriet N. Torrey, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. The Genius of Liberty, pp. 81-2 (August 1853)

    It is as often a weakness in the aged to dictate to the young, as it is folly in the young to slight the warnings of the aged.
    H., U.S. women’s magazine contributor. American Ladies Magazine, pp. 230-3 (May 1828)
