Ann Patchett Speaks About Servitude

“It’s not only gender, but the 12 years of Catholic school and being trained to be a good servant. I believe in this, I really believe that the greatest thing you can do is to serve […] Oh, if I could free myself from the tyranny of good deeds, […] there would be no stopping me. I could be Tolstoy without good deeds. I could really be something.” -Ann Patchett
