"For women like me, it seems, it’s not ours to take charge of beginnings and ending…I only know the middle ground where we live our lives….To resist occupation, whether you’re a nation or merely a woman, you must understand the language of your enemy. Conquest and liberation and democracy and divorce are words that mean squat, basically, when you have hungry children and clothes to get out on the line, and it looks like rain." from The Posionwood Bible
