Stacy Schiff Quotes About Call

Browse 3 famous quotes of Stacy Schiff about Call.

"Life-writing calls for any number of dubious gifts: A touch of O.C.D., a lack of imagination, a large desk, neutrality of Swiss proportions, tactlessness, a high tolerance for archival dust. Most of all it calls for an act of displacement. 'To find your subject, you must in some sense lose yourself along the way,' is Richard Holmes's version." ~ Stacy Schiff
"For a few thousand years, women had no history. Marriage was our calling, and meekness our virtue. Over the last century, in stuttering succession, we have gained a voice, a vote, a room, a playing field of our own. Decorously or defiantly, we now approach what surely qualifies as the final frontier." ~ Stacy Schiff
"Have you ever been married? Had that thing of someone calling you by a name not your own? It's unsettling. It's like a fictitious person." ~ Stacy Schiff
