Feminism is dated? Yes, for privileged women like my daughter and all of us here today, but not for most of our sisters in the rest of the world who are still forced into premature marriage, prostitution, forced labor - they have children that they don't want or they cannot feed.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My books are based on emotions, feelings, relationships. In these areas women are experts, so it's not strange that the main characters of my novels are females.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Heart is what drives us and determines our fate.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am very optimistic because I have seen the changes in my lifetime. I have seen the world change for the better. We always think that present times is terrible, that what's happening today, it was never worse, that the world is going in the most awful direction. But I think that the world that my grandchildren will have will be better than the one I had when I turned 20.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Now of course we have Black historians, but they're usually men. We get the perspective always, the slanted perspective, of what has happened. The battles, the things achieved, the laws, but where are the people, the families? What happens inside the houses, inside the minds and the hearts? That's what I'm interested in.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
