"A truly enjoyable read." -- Texas Books in Review
From pioneer days down to the present day, the women of Texas have had a great deal to say. In Quotable Texas Women. Collaboratively compiled and co-edited by Susie Kelly Flatau and Lou Halsell Rodenberger, Quotable Texas Women is a collection of several hundred statements by Texas women on a variety of topics ranging from Electra Waggoner Biggs who recalls her mother's advice "to always be able to look at myself in the mirror with no regrets", to Artie Stockton's quip that "A good time to lie to yourself is that first look in the morning's mirror." From Molly Ivins opining that "If Texas were a sane place, it wouldn't be nearly as much fun."; to Babe Didrikson Zaharias' observation that "The formula for success is simple: practice and concentration, then more practice and concentration." Highly recommended reading, Quotable Texas Women would also well serve as a template or example of what can be done with recording and showcasing the wit, wisdom, and observations of women in other states and regions of America.

This quotation anthology is well-organized and easy to follow. it makes a great gift for a "Lone Star Lady," or a reference for any public speaking/writing efforts.
The authors of all the quotes are Texan women, and the quotes are organized into subject matter. This makes for easy referencing!

This little gem is a collection of wise, witty quotes from women I'd love to know. Presented in a lovely, compact size that's easy to slip into my handbag, this is a book I'll often refer to for inspiration. In fact, it has already inspired me to begin a new feature on my blog, dedicated to Women's Wit and Wisdom. Thank you, Susie and Lou, for putting together such a valuable collection! Lynn Homer
