Edna Ferber
Women's Voices: Quotations by Women
Quote collection assembled by Jone Johnson Lewis
Quotation: A woman can look book moral and exciting ... if she also looks as if it was quite a struggle.
Quotation: Being an old maid is like death by drowning -- really a delightful sensation after you have ceased struggling.
Quotation: If American politics are too dirty for women to take part in, there's something wrong with American politics.
Quotation: Big doesn't necessarily mean better. Sunflowers aren't better than violets.
Quotation: There is no denying the fact that writers should be read but not seen. Rarely are they a winsome sight.
Quotation: When playwright Noel Coward ran into novelist Edna Ferber and both were wearing nearly identical suits, he said, "Edna, you look almost like a man." "So do you," she replied. [quoted in The American Women's Almanac, Louise Bernikow]
Quotation: A closed mind is a dying mind.
