I had the loveliest lunch yesterday, a gathering of nine fabulous female authors hosted by Ayelet Waldman in honor of Christina Baker Kline, who is in town promoting her new novel, A Piece of the World. I shared a quote from Ayelet yesterday, and thought I would go around the lunch table over the next week sharing a quote from each of my lunch mates. I’d tell you quotes are from the afternoon spent together, but … cone of silence among writers, so we can speak freely. So these will be from their published works.
Today, because she sat to my right, Christina Baker Kline:
The most important qualities a human can possess are an iron will and a persevering spirit.” – Christina Baker Kline, from A Piece of the World
