"Almost done with the Miriam section. I waver between sympathy and annoyance by her unwillingness to move on with her life. I want the women in this book to be stronger and more independent. I guess wishful thinking when you consider the time period." Jun 11, 2011 03:35AM

When I downloaded the eBook preview from Barnes and Nobles' website, I had no idea what lay in store for me. The cover caught my attention first, and I must commend the artist Erin Fitzsimmons for the beautiful design. I knew right away what was in s...more

Gloria E. Anzaldúa
“Why am I compelled to write?... Because the world I create in the writing compensates for what the real world does not give me. By writing I put order in the world, give it a handle so I can grasp it. I write because life does not appease my appetites and anger... To become more intimate with myself and you. To discover myself, to preserve myself, to make myself, to achieve self-autonomy. To dispell the myths that I am a mad prophet or a poor suffering soul. To convince myself that I am worthy and that what I have to say is not a pile of shit... Finally I write because I'm scared of writing, but I'm more scared of not writing.”
Gloria E. Anzaldúa

Pablo Neruda
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Howard Zinn
“The memory of oppressed people is one thing that cannot be taken away, and for such people, with such memories, revolt is always an inch below the surface.”
Howard Zinn, A People's History of the United States: 1492 - Present

Chandra Talpade Mohanty
“Each of us carries around those growing up places, the institutions, a sort of backdrop, a stage set. So often we act out the present against the backdrop of the past, within a frame of perception that is so familiar, so safe that is is terrifying to risk changing it even when we know our perceptions are distorted, limited, constricted by that old view.”
Chandra Talpade Mohanty, Feminism without Borders: Decolonizing Theory, Practicing Solidarity
