“A woman does not have to make decisions based on the need to survive. She can cut through issues, call shots as she sees them.... Many bad decisions are made by men in government because it is good for them personally to make bad public decisions.”

“I have no acting technique.... I act instinctively. Thats why I cant play any role that isnt based on something in my life.”
—Ethel Waters (19001977)
“Italy is such a delightful place to live in if you happen to be a man. There one may enjoy that exquisite luxury of Socialismthat true Socialism which is based not on equality of income or character, but on the equality of manners. In the democracy of the caffè or the street the great question of our life has been solved, and the brotherhood of man is a reality. But it is accomplished at the expense of the sisterhood of women.”
—E.M. (Edward Morgan)
