Golda Meir quote:

“We do not rejoice in victories. We rejoice when a new kind of cotton is grown and when strawberries bloom in Israel.”

Black and white photograph of Golda Meir sitting on a sofa. She has a thoughtful expression, with slight smile, and is looking off to the side. She is wearing a dark blazer, a white blouse, and a pearl necklace. Her hands are clasped in her lap, and she is wearing a watch on her left wrist.
Golda Meir, 1973
