“I was gravely warned by some of my female acquaintances
that no woman could expect to be regarded as a lady after
she had written a book.”
Lydia M. Child (1802-1880), American activist for
women’s rights, ending slavery, and Native American rights

“The genesis of a poem for me is usually
a cluster of words. The only good metaphor
I can think of is a scientific one: dipping
a thread into a supersaturated solution to
induce crystal formation. I don’t think I
solve problems in my poetry; I think I
uncover the problems.”
Margaret Atwood, Canadian novelist
and poet, author of The Handmaid’s Tale
