Yes, Ms Whitton was well known for her raspish quips & comments. A quite brilliant academic she was too.
I like her rather caustic quote which she used several times in speeches, especially to those (men) who audibly attacked her in the popular press:
"Man cannot live by (his) incompetance alone"
She was also well quoted with the following, which I think is very relevant when discussing & considering the merits of trading:
"It's how you deal with failure that determines how you eventually achieve success"
