Quotes of the Day
from Dr Alice von Hildebrand’s talk Restoring the Dignity and Vocation of Women

If I say something true in my talk, it is not mine; it is ours, because truth is essentially catholic, which means universal.  Whereas if I say something false, or truly stupid, give me a patent, because it is truly mine.

God has given women a mission of crucial importance, and one, you can say, is the cornerstone of society.

If you truly understand and respect the mystery of your sex, it gives you the key to the other sex.

Speaking of Simone de Beauvoir and her book The Second Sex, von Hildebrand says:

It just shows you the tragedy of a talented, intelligent woman whose pride is such she becomes totally blind.

Quoting Edith Stein (Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross), von Hildebrand says:

Edith Stein says the mission of women, therefore, is to foster life, to serve life.
