"Kou wathie sa toundeu, tound'eu boo feke mou tass" (When you abandon your own hill, the next hill you climb will crumble) - Wolof Proverb -
"Being a woman is hard work. Not without joy and even ecstasy, but still relentless, unending work."
"The woman who survives intact and happy must be at once tender and tough."
"In a time and world where males hold sway and control, the pressure upon women to yield their rights-of-way is tremendous. And it is under those very circumstances that the woman's toughness must be in evidence."
"Women should be tough, tender, laugh as much as possible, and live long lives. The struggle for equality continues unabated, and the woman warrior who is armed with wit and courage will be among the first to celebrate victory."
