Women of Wednesday: On Change

People change and forget to tell each other.

                                 -- Lillian Hellman

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

                                  -- Harriet Tubman

L'esprit humain fait progres toujours, mais c'est progres en spirale.  (The human mind always makes progress, but it is a progress in spirals.)

                                   -- Madame de Stael

To me success means effectiveness in the world, that I am able to carry my ideas and values into the world -- that I am able to change it in positive ways.
             --Maxine Hong Kingston


If you don't like the way the world is, you change it. You have an obligation to change it You just do it one step at a time.

                           --Marian Wright Edelman


If the shoe doesn't fit, must we change the foot?

                                         --Gloria Steinem
