Amy Tan is the author of The Joy Luck Club among other books. I found this quote by her and rather liked it:
I love my daughter. She and I have shared my body. There is a part of her mind that is part of mine. But when she was born, she sprang from me like a slippery fish, and has been swimming away ever since.
“She and I have shared my body” is a lovely sentiment and a far cry from “my body, my choice.”by
