Every Monday, we're rounding up the things, small and big, that us stop and think. Today, we're inspired by...
•"I saw and began to realize that, if you have the right glasses on, there are a lot of absurd, funny things that happen in connection with being as old as we are."
-90-year-old nursing home resident Jan Slepian, whose self-published book on aging has been adapted into a play.
•"When women root for each other, we get so much further.
-Kate Hudson, in this month’s Elle.
•"I knew what I had to do: I had to become the Avenger of the women's section."
-The Wall Street Journal’s Lucette Lagnado, writing in her new memoir about attending a traditional divided synagogue
•"We really just got angry...[We learned that] you die anyway. You die sitting down. So let’s die trying. And when we stepped out, fortunately we didn’t die—we changed the course of history."
-Liberian revolutionary Leymah Gbowee on confronting then-dictator Charles Taylor in 2003, speaking at last week’s Women in the World Foundation Launch.
