- Courage is the ladder from which all other virtues mount from.
- I'm in my anecdotage.
- They say women talk too much. If you have worked in Congress you know that the filibuster was invented by men.
- To be a liberated woman is to renounce the desire of being a sex object or a baby girl. It is to acknowledge that the Cinderella–Prince Charming Story is a child's fairy tale.
- It is ridiculous to think you can spend your entire life with just one person. Three is about the right number. Yes, I imagine three husbands would do it.
- There are no hopeless situations; there are only men who have grown hopeless about them.
