Christine de Pizan


Christine de Pizan (c. 1364-1430)

“What in the world is more tender than a mother toward her child? What greater pain is there than that felt in a mother’s heart when she sees her child suffer?”

  • From The Book of the City of Ladies (Part III, chapter 11) by Christine de Pizan, translated by Rosalind Brown-Grant (Penguin Classics, 1999).
