“Women have a greater psychic sense than men. I believe this is due to the fact that women so long have been classed as the weaker sex, and they found it necessary to arm themselves with subtle weapons tet the superior physical power of the male. And they found that their strongest weapon would be the development of instinct or their psychic sense.” — Edith Roberts in 1925

Edith Roberts (September 17, 1899 – August 20, 1935) was a silent film actress originally from New York City. As a child, she danced on the vaudeville stage until director King Baggot discovered her at the age of 14. Baggot then arranged a movie contract for her at the Imp movie studio in New York City.
