I'm tired of playing worn-out depressing ladies in frayed bathrobes. I'm going to get a new hairdo and look terrific and go back to school and even if nobody notices, I'm going to be the most self-fulfilled lady on the block.
Joanne Woodward (b. 1930), U.S. actor. As quoted in Ms. magazine, p. 54 (February 1975).
Woodward, an Academy Award-winning movie actor, was commenting on the uninteresting sameness of the roles available to her. She did indeed return to school; a number of years later, she and one of her daughters received their baccalaureates from Sarah Lawrence College on the same day.
