Every expert in this world started out as a beginner.—Suzann Thompson

At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a child, a friend, or a parent.—Barbara Bush

I am Woman—hear me roar. . . . Or is that my vacuum cleaner? —Liz Carpenter

Somewhere deep down, I really feel that every Texas woman ought to own a pair of red boots—even if she never wears them.—Betty Sue Flowers

If Texas were a sane place, it wouldn't be nearly as much fun.—Molly Ivins

If men can run the world, why can't they stop wearing neckties? How intelligent is it to start the day by tying a little noose around your neck?—Linda Ellerbee

It's an honor to be the first woman on the Supreme Court, but it will be even better when we get the second cowgirl on the Supreme Court.—Sandra Day O'Connor

Do not call for black power or green power. Call for brain power. —Barbara Jordan

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
"Highly recommended reading"
Texas Books in Review
"A truly enjoyable read, Quotable Texas Women pays historical tribute to the women who have pioneered Texas in different ways and at different times and are generous enough to share their observations gathered along the way. By lending not only their power and strength but also their grace and beauty, these proud women continually refine and enrich their home state. As museum founder Cathy Bonner muses 'Texas women are like snowflakes.' Pretty and lissome, but tough enough to halt traffic."
