Quotations


Our current obsession with creativity is the result of our continued striving for immortality in an era when most people no longer believe in an after-life.

Whether we regard the Women’s Liberation movement as a serious threat, a passing convulsion, or a fashionable idiocy, it is a movement that mounts an attack on practically everything that women value today and introduces the language and sentiments of political confrontation into the area of personal relationships.

Liberation is an ever-shifting horizon, a total ideology that can never fulfill its promises. . . . It has the therapeutic quality of providing emotionally charged rituals of solidarity in hatred -- it is the amphetamine of its believers.

It would be futile to attempt to fit women into a masculine pattern of attitudes, skills and abilities and disastrous to force them to suppress their specifically female characteristics and abilities by keeping up the pretense that there are no differences between the sexes.

Not only is it harder to be a man, it is also harder to become one.
