And I say, 'When there are nine.' People are shocked. But there'd been nine men, and nobody's ever raised a question about that.""My mother told me two things constantly. One was to be a lady and the other was to be independent. For most girls growing up in the '40s, the most important degree was not your B.A. but your M.R.S.""We have the oldest written constitution still in force in the world, and it starts out with three words, 'We, the people.'"… (more)
