“Let us go forth with fear and courage and rage to save the world.”
Grace Paley

“There is a long time in me between knowing and telling.”
Grace Paley, Enormous Changes at the Last Minute

“The only thing you should have to do is find work you love to do. And I can't imagine living without having loved a person. A man, in my case. It could be a woman, but whatever. I think, what I always tell kids when they get out of class and ask, 'What should I do now?' I always say, 'Keep a low overhead. You're not going to make a lot of money.' And the next thing I say: 'Don't live with a person who doesn't respect your work.' That's the most important thing—that's more important than the money thing. I think those two things are very valuable pieces of information.”
Grace Paley
