Elizabeth Berg

  • Ruth has friends like other people have wardrobes. I mean that there's someone for every occasion.

  • I think one of the reasons we have children is to believe everything all over again. And I'm not talking Santa, here, either.

  • I believe that the souls of women flatten and anchor themselves in times of adversity, lay in for the stay. I've heard that when elephants are attacked they often run, not away, but toward each other. Perhaps it is because they are a matriarchal society.

  • I don't think men try to make women be like them, but I think women try to make men be like them, a lot.
