KWIK KWOTES: Help Wanted (But By Whom?)

“I have come to believe in the heart of every woman there is a secretary: she wants to assist.”

ANNE CALCAGNO “Story of My Weight”  TriQuarterly  #72  (Spring/Summer 1988)

And from the same short story …..

“You think women understand the world less than men?” I asked.

She looked at me and her eyes turned very thin. “Are you kidding? Everyone of these men had a mom, and if those moms hadn’t been preparing men for the world the men wouldn’t be able to handle anything.” She looked at her red fingernails. “It takes a woman to know.”
