PPMobileBannerSteinem"I do get burned out from time to time. In the beginning I thought, Well, this is something I’ll do for a couple of years. It’s so reasonable. Certainly if we just say what’s wrong, people will put things right. So I didn’t pace myself. I just went flat out, lecturing, organizing. I felt that this was a flat-out effort for a few years and then I would stop doing it and do something else. Since then I’ve realized that it’s something that will take a lifetime. It’s not just a year or two, it’s our whole lives. So that helps you to pace yourself. You realize you can’t be flat-out active all the time, that you need time to think and read. You’ve got to be active in cycles." Gloria Steinem -- Particular Passions: Talks with Women Who Shaped Our Times, by Lynn Gilbert.
