"For a few thousand years, women had no history. Marriage was our calling, and meekness our virtue.

She was incomparably richer than anyone else in the Mediterranean. And she enjoyed greater prestige than any other woman of her age.....

She nonetheless survives as a wanton temptress, not the last time a genuinely powerful woman has been transmuted into a shamelessly seductive one." ~ Stacy Schiff
"You ever try to leave New York? I did once. I lasted about a year." ~ Stacy Schiff
