Martha Gellhorn

"Why do people talk of the horrors of old age? It's great. I feel like a fine old car with the parts gradually wearing out, but I'm not complaining...Those who find growing old terrible are people who haven't done what they wanted with their lives."

"It's harder to be home. There's more stuff going on. 
At least when you're overseers you have structure…
At home it's complete chaos all the time…
 is truly amazing, that someone can recognize that."

"When I say the feminine, I don't mean gender.
 I mean the feminine principle that is living
—or suppressed—in both men and women.
 The feminine principle attempts to relate.
 Instead of breaking things off into parts, it says,
 Where are we alike? How can we connect? 
Where is the love? Can you listen to me?
 Can you really hear what I am saying? 
Can you see me? Do you care whether
 you see me or not?"
