Quote of the Day

Did I have grievances as a young woman?  You bet.  But protesting or sign carrying wasn't me -- and wasn't going to get it done.  Billie Jean [King], now there was an influential force.  Was there anything more equalizing than her sheer toughness, her combination of smarts and muscle?  I wanted to influence, and to change.  But there was only one way I could see that changed things: winning.  You changed things for women by winning.

-- Pat Summitt with Sally Jenkins, Sum It Up, p. 79
