Quotes

Quote Left Gender equality means nothing until we consider it to mean that femininity and masculinity, when we consider the full scope of capabilities that they each afford humanity, are of equal value to society. Therefore, women who act out equality while suppressing their femininity do not prove equality but only the advantage of masculinity Quote Right

I am Agona Apell, a civil engineer by training and a writer by blessing. I have had a lifelong attachment to literature. My school-time choice of career, though, tore me from the world of literary pursuits to land me in the world of engineering where I spent 20 years. The parting was not to last, and how I rejoice in the reunion with my passion. Since 2006 I have been building my life anew, this time as a writer. Although non-fiction prose is the staple of my writing, I occasionally make forays into poetry. So here I am, glad to be among this sprightly host of poets.
