Ursula K. Le Guin
“My mother was mad, but I was not. My father was old, but I was young. Like Spartan Helen, I caused a war. She caused hers by letting men who wanted her take her. I caused mine because I wouldn’t be given, wouldn’t be taken, but chose my man and my fate.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, Lavinia

Franklin D. Roosevelt
