Mary Wollstonecraft
“Let their faculties have room to unfold, and their virtues to gain strength, and then determine where the whole sex must stand in the intellectual scale.”
Mary Wollstonecraft

Jane Austen
“Goldsmith tells us, that when lovely woman stoops to folly, she has nothing to do but to die; and when she stoops to be disagreeable, it is equally to be recommended as a clearer of ill-fame.”
Jane Austen, Emma

“Look forward, not back. Correct your course and go on. You can't undo yesterday's journey”
Hobb Robin

J.R.R. Tolkien
“The doom of the Elves is to be immortal, to love the beauty of the world, to bring it to full flower with their gifts of delicacy and perfection, to last while it lasts, never leaving it even when ‘slain’, but returning – and yet, when the Followers come, to teach them, and make way for them, to ‘fade’ as the Followers grow and absorb the life from which both proceed. The Doom (or the Gift) of Men is mortality, freedom from the circles of the world.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion

Douglas Adams
“We also live in strange places: each in a universe of our own. The people with whom we populate our universes are the shadows of whole other universes intersecting with our own.”
Douglas Adams, Mostly Harmless
