” Every Woman..
Should have a past juicy enough that she’s looking forward to retelling it in her old age.
Should have a feeling of control over her destiny.
Should know how to fall in love without losing herself.
Should know that her childhood may not have been perfect but its over.
Should know how to quit a job, break up with a lover and confront a friend without ruining the friendship.
Should know when to try harder and when to walk away .
Should know how to live alone even if she doesn’t like it. “
– Maya Angelou or Pamela Redmon Satran’s poem.
