Famous quotes containing the word act:

    of artists dying in childbirth, wise-women charred at the stake,
    centuries of books unwritten piled behind these shelves;
    and we still have to stare into the absence
    of men who would not, women who could not, speak
    to our life—this still unexcavated hole
    called civilization, this act of translation, this half-world.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
