„It is a vulgar error that love, a love, to Woman is her whole existence; she also is born for Truth and Love in their universal energy.“

—  Margaret Fuller, книга Woman in the Nineteenth Century

Woman in the Nineteenth Century (1845)
Контексте: Woman, self-centred, would never be absorbed by any relation it would be only an experience to her as to man. It is a vulgar error that love, a love, to Woman is her whole existence; she also is born for Truth and Love in their universal energy.

„The whole race is a poet that writes down
The eccentric propositions of its fate.“

—  Wallace Stevens American poet 1879 - 1955

"Men Made Out of Words"
Transport to Summer (1947)
Контексте: Life consists
Of propositions about life. The human
Revery is a solitude in which
We compose these propositions, torn by dreams, By the terrible incantations of defeats
And by the fear that the defeats and the dreams are one. The whole race is a poet that writes down
The eccentric propositions of its fate.

Virginia Woolf фото

„As a woman I have no country. As a woman I want no country. As a woman, my country is the whole world.“

—  Virginia Woolf, книга Three Guineas

Источник: Three Guineas (1938), Ch. 3, p. 109
Контексте: The outsider will say, "in fact, as a woman, I have no country. As a woman I want no country. As a woman my country is the whole world." And if, when reason has said its say, still some obstinate emotion remains, some love of England dropped into a child's ears by the cawing of rooks in an elm tree, by the splash of waves on a beach, or by English voices murmuring nursery rhymes, this drop of pure, if irrational, emotion she will make serve her to give to England first what she desires of peace and freedom for the whole world.

Isadora Duncan фото

„Love is not the sacred thing that poets talk about … Love is an illusion; it is the world's greatest mistake. I ought to know for I've been loved as no other woman of my time has been loved. Men have threatened suicide, they have taken poison, they have fought duels for me. All kinds have come to me — geniuses, poets, millionaires, artists, musicians — but now there is not one to whom I have appealed for the loan of £25 who have responded.
There is love for you!“

—  Isadora Duncan American dancer and choreographer 1877 - 1927
