Some more quotes

There is no female Mozart because there is no female Jack the Ripper.

Camille Paglia
--Sexual Personae

The Papacy is not other than the ghost of the deceased Roman empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof.

Thomas Hobbes
--Leviathan



He was an embittered atheist (the sort of atheist who does not so much disbelieve in God as personally dislike Him).

George Orwell
--Down and Out in Paris and London

The notion that human life is sacred just because it is human life is medieval.

Peter Singer


Ethiopians make their gods black and snub-nosed, Thracians red-haired and with blue eyes; so also they conceive the spirits of the gods to be like themselves.

Xenophanes
--Attributed

The Other

For him she is sex - absolute sex, no less. She is defined and differentiated with reference to man and not he with reference to her; she is the incidental, the inessential as opposed to the essential. He is the Subject, he is the Absolute - she is the Other.

Simone de Beauvoir
--Second Sex
