Marge Piercy

A Quote by Marge Piercy on love and openness

It hurts to love wide open
stretching the muscles...

It hurts to thwart the reflexes
of grab, of clutch; to love and let
go again and again.

Marge Piercy

A Quote by Marge Piercy on womenswisdom and strength


You are built to pull a cart,
to lift a heavy load and bear it,
to haul up the long slope, and so
am I, peasant bodies, earthy, solid
shapely dark glazed clay pots that can
stand on the fire.
