Quote of the Day

I could see that not speaking up made my mother feel worse.  This was my first hint of truism that depression is anger turned inward; thus women are twice as likely to be depressed.  My mother paid a high price for caring so much, yet being able to do so little about it.  In this way, she led me toward an activist place where she herself could never go.

-- Gloria Steinem, My Life on the Road, p. 129
