145 Top Famous Inspirational Quotes of Sylvia Plath

Sylvia Plath was an American poet, novelist, and short-story writer. Born in Boston, Massachusetts, she studied at Smith College and Newnham College at the University of Cambridge before receiving acclaim as a poet and writer. Wikipedia
Sylvia Plath tried to do away and live away from the shackles of oppression through her writings. Her semi-autobiographical work and the only novel she wrote in her lifetime, The Bell Jar, has one leading theme- that of being an absolutely capable and smart individual but spending your life as a ‘mat outside your kitchen’, because you’re a woman. Her words are like that small surgical blade, it might look small, but its depth will pierce your mind and leave a mark.
Born: October 27, 1932, Jamaica Plain, Boston, Massachusetts, United States
Died: February 11, 1963, Primrose Hill, London, United Kingdom
