My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant to be your own person, to be independent.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

My grandmother was a grand lady. She was a liberal Republican. Yes, Virginia, long, long ago where was such a thing. When I’m faced with a decision, I remember her advice.

Some of the things my grandmother told me.

Don’t wear your clothes too tight. It looks like you gained weight and can’t afford to buy new clothes.

Regarding a women’s right to choose. If a women had the first baby and a man had the second, there wouldn’t be a third.

 You have good taste it doesn’t matter how much money you have. If you don’t have good taste, money won’t make a difference.

Discussing birth control. She asked, “Is the Pope going to buy their shoes?”

She also said, “Don’t tell tales out of school” and would probably hate that I wrote this.
