„Le amicizie non sono perfette, e tuttavia esse sono preziose. Per me, non aspettarsi la perfezione tutta in una volta è stato un grande sollievo.“

„Noi abbiamo bisogno di vecchi amici che ci aiutino a diventare vecchi e di giovani amici che ci aiutino a restare giovani.“


„When men are oppressed, it's a tragedy. When women are oppressed, it's tradition.“ Deborah, Golda, and Me: Being Female and Jewish in America

„Boys don't make passes at female smart asses.“

„People tend to be exquisitely precise when describing pain. We don't just say it hurts, we say it throbs or aches; it's a burning, wrenching, gnawing sensation; it's sharp or dull; it chafes; it stings. But where pain specifies, joy generalizes. It was great! we say. Terrific! Beautiful! Fantastic!“ Three Daughters

„When the president of the United States flicks the switch to light up the Christmas tree on the White House lawn, that house ceases to be an American symbol; it becomes a Christian symbol.“ DEBORAH, GOLDA AND ME

„Friends can be said to "fall in like" with as profound a thud as romantic partners fall in love.“
