As A Woman


As a woman I have no country. As a woman my country is the whole world. ~Virginia Woolf

well, i don't really thing you need to be a woman to consider the whole world your country but it probably helps :)

I'm with Polona. To make this only a woman's statement is prejudicial.

Very cool quote and so important.

Oh I love this. If only all of us could say. As a man, as a woman, as a human being...We are citizens of the world. Connected inseparably by our common humanity.

Sending hope, M

I always thought that as an artist I see the world that way. Also, because I've moved so much in my life, have spent very little time in Canada yet still remain a citizen there. I often joke about being a woman without a country.

This is how I characterize myself as well, especially since I'm so many things put together over the course of generations. I've always liked the idea of being a "person of the world".
