Famous quotes containing the words ursula k and/or guin:

    We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)

    Public speaking is done in the public tongue, the national or tribal language; and the language of our tribe is the men’s language. Of course women learn it. We’re not dumb. If you can tell Margaret Thatcher from Ronald Reagan, or Indira Gandhi from General Somoza, by anything they say, tell me how. This is a man’s world, so it talks a man’s language.
    —Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)
