IWD - Some good quotes.

March 8th was International Women's Day, but I missed posting about it. DemiOrator and The Fat Lady Sings had posts that reminded me (other blogs posted about it, too, I'm sure). Tardily, I am posting the following quotes (received in an E-mail about IWD) from famous women. I certainly enjoyed reading them:
