Famous quotes containing the words walker and/or shirley:

    How simple a thing it seems to me that to know ourselves as we are, we must know our mothers’ names.
    —Alice Walker (b. 1944)

    Popular culture entered my life as Shirley Temple, who was exactly my age and wrote a letter in the newspapers telling how her mother fixed spinach for her, with lots of butter.... I was impressed by Shirley Temple as a little girl my age who had power: she could write a piece for the newspapers and have it printed in her own handwriting.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
