Yoko Ono
“I think that all women are witches, in the sense that a witch is a magical being. And a wizard, which is a male version of a witch, is kind of revered, and people respect wizards.

And so I just wanted to point out the fact that men and women are magical beings. We are very blessed that way, so I’m just bringing that out. Don’t be scared of witches, because we are good witches, and you should appreciate our magical power.”
Yoko Ono

Defending the nest is both our oldest and strongest instinct. And sometimes, it can also be the most gratifying.”
