Quote of the Day: Miriam Schapiro

 

Miriam Schapiro, "Big Ox" (1967)

“People forget that the origin of the word ‘sentiment’ also gives rise to ‘sentience’ and ‘sensibility.’ And those are all words about feeling. So if you take the sentimentality away from women, you’re taking their feeling away, and you can’t do that to them, to us. You can’t take our feelings away.”

—Miriam Schapiro (1923-2015)
