A Quote by Anita Brookner on justice, life, and women

A Quote by Anita Brookner on books, justice, life, and simplicity

The lessons taught in great books are misleading. The commerce in life is rarely so simple and never so just.

A Quote by Angela Carter on beginning, curiosity, justice, knowledge, life, preparation, questions, theory, time, and trying

There's a theory, one I find persuasive, that the quest for knowledge is, at bottom, the search for the answer to the question: "Where was I before I was born." In the beginning was . . . what? Perhaps, in the beginning, there was a curious room, a room like this one, crammed with wonders; and now the room and all it contains are forbidden you, although it was made just for you, had been prepared for you since time began, and you will spend all your life trying to remember it.

A Quote by Angela Carter on emotion, fatherhood, inventions, justice, life, motherhood, satisfaction, and women

Mother goddesses are just as silly a notion as father gods. If a revival of the myths of these cults gives woman emotional satisfaction, it does so at the price of obscuring the real conditions of life. This is why they were invented in the first place.

A Quote by Andrea Dworkin on freedom, justice, learning, men, struggle, support, understanding, violence, and women

Men who want to support women in our struggle for freedom and justice should understand that it is not terrifically important to us that they learn to cry; it is important to us that they stop the crimes of violence against us.
