|[quote[ "To me the "female principle" is, or at least historically has been, basically anarchic. It values order without constraint, rule by custom not by force. It has been the male who enforces order, who constructs power structures, who makes, enforces, and breaks laws." |
Is this from The Dispossessed?

|From Ursula K. LeGuin, one of my favourite authors:|
“If you evade suffering you also evade the chance of joy. Pleasure you may get, or pleasures, but you will not be fulfilled. You will not know what it is to come home.”
“Sacrifice might be demanded of the individual, but never compromise: for though only the society could give security and stability, only the individual, the person, had the power of moral choice—the power of change, the essential function of human life.”

|And now for Alice Walker (author of The Colour Purple) from her essay entitled: “The Only Reason You Want To Go To Heaven is That You Have Been Driven Out of Your Mind (Off of Your Land and Out of Your Lover’s Arms)":|
"What a burden to think one is conceived in sin rather than in pleasure; that one is born into evil rather than into joy."
"When you're taught God loves you, but only if you're good, obedient, trusting, and so forth, and you know you're that way only some of the time, there's a tendency to deny your shadow side. Hence the hypocrisy"
"And what is the result of decolonizing the spirit? . . . . One begins to see the world from one's own point of view; to interact with it out of one's own conscience and heart . . . . We begin to flow, again, with and into the Universe . . . . We begin to see that we must be loved very much by whatever Creation is, to find ourselves on this wonderful Earth . . . . We begin to feel glad, and grateful that we are not in heaven but that we are here.

|Ad eundum quo nemo ante iit - To boldly go where no man has gone before|
Aequam memento rebus in arduis servare mentem - Remember when life's path is steep to keep your mind even.
Aut viam inveniam aut faciam - I will either find a way or make one
Amicus verus est rara avis - A true friend is a rare bird
Si vis pacem, para bellum - If you want peace, prepare for the war. (Vegetius)

|I lie awake waiting for you.|
As I lie on my bed, thinking about you,
I feel this strong urge to grab you and squeeze you,
because I can't forget last night.
You came to me unexpectedly during the balmy and calm night,
and what happened in my bed still leaves a tingling sensation in me.
You appeared from nowhere and shamelessly,
and without any reservations, you lay on my naked body...
You sensed my indifference, yet....
you applied your hungry mouth to me without any guilt or humiliation,
and you nearly drove me crazy while you drained me.
Finally I went to sleep.
Today when I woke up, you were gone.
I searched for you but to no avail, only the sheets bore witness to last night's events.
My body still bears faint marks of your enthusiastic ravishings,
making it harder to forget you.
Tonight I will remain awake waiting for you...
....you f*cking mosquito.

|Dorothy Parker had some great, entertaining quotes. Here's a few of my personal favorites:|
If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.
This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.
The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.
She runs the gamut of emotions from A to B.
Dorothy Parker speaking of Katherine Hepburn
If all the girls who attended the Yale prom were laid end-to-end, I wouldn't be a bit surprised.

|Wow heftymon, as i was scrolling down, i was thinking of that exact quote, i love emerson.|
"You must not be content merely to prove that justice is superior to injustice, but explain how one is good, the other evil, in virtue of the intrinsic effect each has on its possessor, whether Gods or men see it or not." PLATO
"The soul should function as a society should, plato says, yet today our soul is functioning on its own and our society in dramatic choas...why is is it we live so seperately? this o question, take in, digest and attempt to re-sort in my actions.."Melissa Delong

|The great Einstein:|
"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."
And my favourite music lyric quote:
"Life is just what happens to you, while you're busy making other plans"
Lennon. I saw this written on the wall surrounding Abbey Road in London and I almost dropped dead.

|The truth is write for yourself and don't gave a damn about anyone else|
or care for another like crazy - and express that in ways of being selfish
because you as the 'poet' are the master of your own words
