Ursula K. Le Guin

She has many great quotes, but my all-time favorite is this:

"If you deny any affinity with another person or kind of person, if you declare it to be wholly different from yourself—as men have done to women, and class has done to class, and nation has done to nation—you may hate it, or deify it; but in either case you have denied its spiritual equality, and its human reality. You have made it into a thing, to which the only possible relationship is a power relationship. And thus you have fatally improverished your own reality. You have, in fact, alienated yourself."

Couple quotes

You can call on beauty still and it will leap from all directions.

~Adrienne Rich, (From Calle Vision, Dark Fields of the Republic: Poems 1991-1995)

OR

A little song, a little dance, a little seltzer down your pants.

~Chuckles the Clown

Still searching for the right brainy quote.

Tex's picture

Adrienne Rich (choice for today....)

The connections between and among women are the most feared, the most problematic, and the most potentially transforming force on the planet.

He has so many good quotes....

This is one of my favorites. “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.” Also, pretty much everything in Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Camus

Not my favorite but certainly pertinent “All that I know most surely about morality and obligations, I owe to football" or soccer if you will.

I have lots of favorite...

I can't pick just one.

"Fear of something is at the root of hate for others, and hate within will eventually destroy the hater."-George Washington Carver

"But it was my integrity that was important. Is that so selfish? It sells for so little, but it's all we have left in this place. It is the very last inch of us. But within that inch we are free."-Valerie from V for Vendetta

"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these."-George Washington Carver

"Yeah, we need to know who wrote the Declaration of Independence and when to use an apostrophe in its, but more than that we need to know how to love to learn and how to totally entertain people at cocktail parties. Do you think folks who use apostrophes right are the hit of cocktail parties? Nope. It's those of us who can hypnotize chickens, every time."  - a website about hypnotizing chickens...and yes, I can do it. Although I am not sure if I should be proud of that fact or not.

The difference between

The difference between involvement and commitment is like ham and eggs. The chicken is involved; the pig is committed.

-Martina Navratilova

It is what it is.
