“„Wir haben von allem zu wenig […] und ihr habt von allem zu viel – auch von der Freiheit. Ich sehe, der Mensch verdient die Freiheit nicht. Er weiß nicht, wo er Halt machen muß, er hat kein Maß und keinen Instinkt mehr. Er will mehr und mehr und kann gar nichts damit anfangen. Er langweilt sich, er freut sich nicht mehr, er wird krank, weil er nicht weiß, warum er nicht glücklich ist mit all dem, was er hat..[…]”

“(...) o sigui que si una dona fa la seva vida i no se sotmet de bon grat a l’home, és una histèrica o una neuròtica. Si al llit no reacciona com l’home espera des de la simplicitat i la supèrbia, és una frígida. I si es vol prendre les mateixes llibertats que l’home en l’àmbit sexual, és una nimfòmana. Els amos i els senyors tenen una etiqueta per a tot el que fan o són les dones. En canvi, no en tenen cap per parlar dels defectes propis. Encara pitjor: es pensen que no en tenen, de defectes.”- Els homes”
