“Where there is a woman there is magic. If there is a moon falling from her
mouth, she is a woman who knows her magic, who can share or not share her
powers. A woman with a moon falling from her mouth, roses between her legs
and tiaras of Spanish moss, this woman is a consort of the spirits.”
~Ntozake Shange, ‘Sassafrass, Cypress, and Indigo’
“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman
is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion
that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.”
Watch a mother — how much she does for the child. But if you ask her, she will
say, “I have not been doing anything. In fact many more things were needed to be
done and I have not done them. I always feel that my child has not received as
much care as was needed.” Then go to the secretary of a club or an institute and
ask him. He will give you a long list of everything that he has been doing
there. Even things which he has not done will be included in the list!
He is a doer; a mother is a lover.
“It is ridiculous to use the expression “weak woman”, for woman is psychically
stronger than man. Not in herself, but through being more closely connected with
the Creative Power, which grants her the more delicate intuitive faculty.
And this is just what the woman tries to hide today; she exerts herself to
coarsen or suppress it altogether.”
