Review:

This collection of quotes drawn from some 75 women--the majority American--is perhaps most stirring on freedom and least convincing, or at least too conventional, on love. Disputing the legend that she sparked a major American civil rights confrontation by being too tired to give up her bus seat to a white man, Rosa Parks says "... the only tired I was, was tired of giving in." Sensualist Anais Nin writes "I like extravagance. Letters which give the postman a stiff back to carry, books which overflow from their covers, sexuality which bursts the thermometers." Not meant to be read in one sitting, The Wisdom of Women offers pleasant diversion when dipped into now and again.
