Quote for the day

Today AfricanKelli posted about a book that touched her, and I was immediately drawn in by the quotes she posted, including the one below:

"You could be all the traditional feminine things — a mother, a lover, a listener, a nurturer — and you could also be critically astute and radical and have a minority opinion that was profoundly moral. You could escape the fate of your mother, become who you were born to be, and succeed in the world without having to participate in traditionally male terms — without hardness, coldness, one-upmanship, without having to compete and come out the winner." -- From Traveling Mercies by Anne Lamott
