A Quote by Diane Ackerman on desires, force, life, optimism, passion, sex, world, and youth

A flower's fragrance declares to all the world that it is fertile, available, and desirable, its sex organs oozing with nectar. Its smell reminds us in vestigial ways of fertility, vigor, life-force, all the optimism, expectancy, and passionate bloom of youth. We inhale its ardent aroma and, no matter what our ages, we feel young and nubile in a world aflame with desire.

Diane Ackerman (1948 -)

A Quote by Clare Boothe Luce on challenge, chance, defeat, loyalty, men, politics, sex, and women

To put a woman on the ticket would challenge the loyalty of women everywhere to their sex, because it would be made to seem that the defeat of the ticket meant the defeat for a hundred years of women's chance to be truly equal with men in politics.

A Quote by Camille Paglia on culture, identity, order, power, relationships, and sex

Sex IS power. Identity is power. In western culture, there are no nonexploitative relationships. Everyone has killed in order to live.

A Quote by Beverly LaHaye on children, curiosity, education, enemies, family, good, obsession, radicals, schools, and sex

One of the most devastating enemies of the family is radical sex education in the public school. It is more explicit than necessary for the good of the child. Too much sex education too soon causes undue curiosity and obsession with sex.
