“What does it mean when a man falls in love with a radiant face across the room? It may mean that he has some soul work to do. His soul is the issue. Instead of pursuing the woman and trying to get her alone, away from her husband, he needs to go alone himself, perhaps to a mountain cabin, for three months, write poetry, canoe down a river, and dream. That would save some women a lot of trouble.” Robert Bly
"Lena Bryant...known to us because her bank loan was misspelled, as Lane Bryant. She was a Lithuanian immigrant, widowed at 20. Her BIL loaned her $ 300 for a dress shop in 1904, and when a pregnant lady asked for a dress that would grow with her, Lena made a simple tea dress with an elastic waist. The first commercial maternity dress ever sold. Her motto, "Of course we can fit you!" was music to the ears of a nation of women, now same as then."
