    • essay title, in Rosalind Warren, ed., Women's Glib ()
  • Labor is not as bad as it's cracked up to be. Sure, it hurts like hell. But then it's over. What you should really worry about are the next eighteen years — they're painful in a much slower way, like peeling a huge adhesive bandage off your brain, cell by cell.

(1955 - 2009)
