Quotes

    Tata Osipovahas quoted2 years ago
    but what is intellect when it has no sympathy with human kind
    Sesilihas quoted3 years ago
    But I think it is my Privilege to say that it is high time my sex ceased to monopolize all the modesty and that man ceased to monopolize all the intelligence. It is time we had a fair division and I am quite sure a little modesty will not hurt the men. As for intelligence, my sex has already experimented with that ingredient, and found it like mother Eve’s forbidden fruit: Very Good.
    Sesilihas quoted3 years ago
    Woman and man as well even today are the victims of laws and customs that originated ages ago in brute force among our savage ancestors that lived in caves and fought each other over the possession of a bone or a woman, man the strongest physically but not mentally enslaved the woman and by an exhibition of muscular Power wielded in the shape of clubs over weaker men, enslaved them also. The “law of might” came and fastened its hold on the Human race and curses Humanity to the present day.
