“... a woman's life ... had two parts, one when she must transmit, like stored honey, all that she had to give. Then, unlike the queen bee, she did not die, her work done; but out of the inexhaustible core of her deepest personality, started in again to weave for herself a soul, a being, strong enough to face the rigors of eternity.”
Laura Krey, U.S. writer
(1890 - 1985)
Full name: Laura Letitia Smith Krey.
