Just a note to everyone about a moderator in our Quotations Forum. Phaedrus has been helping us in the forum, deleting spam and answering questions.
When I am stumped on a quotation question, I am always surprised at how quickly and accurately Phaedrus is able to answer. For example, we recently had this question in the Who Said That? Forum:
Can anybody help me!
I am looking for the reference for Mary Field Belenky’s quote.
“Really listening and suspending one’s own judgment is necessary in order to understand other people on their own terms… This is a process that requires trust and builds trust.”
I would be eternally grateful if you can tell me.
After looking through my records, I was unable to provide a reference for her, but Phaedrus pulled through with more accuracy that I could have hoped for:
It’s from Women’s Ways of Knowing: The Development of Self, Voice, and Mind By Mary Field Belenky, p. 187. The full passage is here:
Now, that quote is in our collection with more accuracy than before and it’s all because of Phaedrus’ untiring devotion to quotations.
Thanks again, Phaedrus, you’re the best!
