This week, the Nobel Prize-winning British novelist Doris Lessing — who responded, "I couldn't care less," when reporters told her she had won the Nobel Prize for literature — passed away at 94. Doris was most well-known for her loosely autobiographical 1962 novel The Golden Notebook, which was shocking at the time with its feminist themes and topics such as casual sex, homosexuality, rape, and infidelity. The outspoken writer was also known for her contemplative words of wisdom on everything from reading to love. As we say farewell to a legendary novelist, we celebrate her life with some her most poignant quotes.
