Famous Creative Women Quotations from . . .

Marge Piercy
(1936-____) born on
Mar 31
US writer. "She wrote "Woman on the Edge of Time," 1976 and "Mars and Her Children," 1992."

"All women hustle. Women watch faces, voices, gestures, moods . . . She's the person who has to survive through cunning."

When I work I am pure as an angel tiger and clear is my eye and hot my brain and silent all the whining grunting piglets of the appetites.
A new idea is rarely born like Venus attended by graces
More commonly it's modeled of baling wire and acne.
More commonly it wheezes and tips over.
The real writer is one who really writes. Talent is an invention like phlogiston after the fact of fire. Work is its own cure. You have to like it better than being loved.
This life is a war we are not yet winning for our daughters' children.
Don't do your enemies' work for them.
Finish your own.
