There’s nothing more intimate in life than simply being understood.
Do not look for a sanctuary in anyone except your self.
A serious and good philosophical work could be written consisting entirely of jokes.
The mind is everything. What you think you become.
The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.
Curves don’t epitomise a woman. Saying, ‘Skinny is ugly’ should be no more acceptable than saying fat is. I find all this stuff a very controlling and effective way of making women obsess over their weight, instead of exploiting their more important attributes, such as intellect, strength and power. We could be getting angry about unequal pay and unequal opportunities, but we’re too busy being told we’re not thin enough or curvy enough. We’re holding ourselves back.
You are personally responsible for becoming more ethical than the society you grew up in.
Being a “product of their times” is no excuse. Never let someone off the hook for bigotry.
You don’t always win your battles, but it’s good to know you fought.
