“Those who don’t know how to weep with their whole heart don’t know how to laugh either.”
Elinor Burkett, Golda

“How did she do it? “She comes clumping along with that sad, suffering face drawn with pain from her varicose veins and God knows what-all,” one old-timer said. “You rush to help her to your seat. She thanks you kindly. The next thing you know you’re dead.”

“I remember so well when we sat down in the chairs in the Oval Office, and the photographers came in…and we were shaking hands, and she was smiling and making the right friendly comments,” Nixon recalled. “Then the photographers left the room. She crossed her legs, lit a cigarette and said, ‘Now, Mr. President, what are you going to do about those planes that we want and we need very much?’…Golda Meir acted like a man and wanted to be treated like a man. There is no question that she was a very strong, intelligent leader in her own right.”
Elinor Burkett, Golda
