Śniąc odnalazła swoją ścieżkę,
Podróżując odnalazła swoje życie,
Żyjąc odnalazła swoją drogę."

This miss suffered from anaemia and had a nervous breakdown caused by overwork. She was forbidden to write for at least a year.
Being in that state she ran into an old acquaintance, a French fencing teacher. He talked her into being her instructor for six months.
The therapy began.
For a week the little lady would lie every day on a roof of her guesthouse."

"Powiem ci co sądzę o jeździe na rowerze. Uważam, że ze wszystkich rzeczy na świecie to właśnie jazda na rowerze najwięcej zrobiła dla emancypacji kobiet. Daje kobietom poczucie wolności i niezależności. Za każdym razem, kiedy widzę kobietę na rowerze, zatrzymuję się i raduję tym widokiem...jest to obraz wolnej, nieskrępowanej kobiecości."
/Susan B. Anthony/

"Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood."
/Susan B. Anthony/
(the text says):
left: "an elegant cyclist"
right: "Yes, cycling is a beautiful sport. So popular and so very cheap. You save 200 zlotys every month and after a year it turns out that you can get yourself a beautiful lady's bicycle (which - as every lady - has to be beautiful).
Nobody asks you where you took the money from. Nobody envies you. You don't pay a tax. Polish roads welcome you and spread themselves in front of the wheels.
Whether on your own or in a group, you climb the saddle and you get some pleasant daily activity, some sport, and a beautiful slender silhouette with no effort or trouble.
A bicycle was for your great grandmother an unattainable dream, the height of progress and a symbol of modernity."
