Martha Jane Cannary was born on May 1, 1856 and died on August 1, 1903. Martha was better known as Calamity Jane and was an American frontierswoman known for being an acquaintance of Wild Bill Hickok‘s.
I think it’s noble that Jane stated this about being a legend. Perhaps she was a narcissist and did want to be famous or have what she did or accomplished written in history. I think we all strive for that in one way or another. Not everyone but I know I’d like to be remembered.
Jane gets a couple additional quotes added. The first being ‘Thought about being a lady but they told me I couldn’t cuss’ fits me to a tee. Although I can refrain from cussing when I shouldn’t. Cussing doesn’t make you less of a lady or less intelligent. The other quote Jane said is ‘Every day takes figuring out all over again how to fucking live.’ and I would agree. When one struggles as I do with post traumatic stress disorder it goes take one day at a time to figure out how to live. When anyone has went through domestic violence or sexual assault or is a victim or not a victim. Life is tough and some days you have to slow it down and try to figure out how to live.
