A Quote by Margaret Fuller on women, marriage, and equality

I have urged on Woman independence of Man, not that I do not think the sexes mutually needed by one another, but because in Woman this fact has led to an excessive devotion, which has cooled love, degraded marriage, and prevented either sex from being what it should be to itself or the other.
I wish Woman to live, first for God's sake.  Then she will not make an imperfect man her god, and thus sink to idolatry.  Then she will not take what is not fit for her from a sense of weakness and poverty.  Then, if she finds what she needs in Man embodied, she will know how to love, and be worthy of being loved.

Margaret Fuller (1810 - 1850)

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on visitation, absence, commonality, and equality

I ask permission to be like everybody else,
like the rest of the world and what's more, like anybody else:
I beg you, with all my heart,
if we are talking about me, since we are talking about me,
please resist blasting the trumpet during my visit
and resign yourselves to my quiet absence.

Pablo Neruda (1904 - 1973)

A Quote by Jesus on jesus, salome, thomas, one, god, student, disciple, equality, and sexes

Salome said, “Who are you, sir, to say you come from the One, when you climbed (up).. and ate from my table?” Jesus said to her, “I am from the balance of Unity. I received that which belongs to my father/mother. I am your student! Because of this I say, Whoever is unified will be full of light but whoever is divided is full of darkness."
