“Man blir ikke snill av å ha det vondt. I regelen blir man slem av å ha det vondt. Krangelen om hvem som har hatt det verst, er barnslig. I regelen forkrøples de undertrykkede og får et ødelagt følelsesliv, i regelen overtar de undertrykkede undertrykkerens tankegang og metoder, det er undertrykkelsens mest imfame konsekvens, at den ødelegger de undertrykkede og gjør dem mindre i stand til å frigjøre seg. Det skal hardt arbeid til for å gjøre lidelsen om til noe som er nyttig for noen, særlig for den lidende selv.”
Vigdis Hjorth, Arv og miljø

“She practised losing with style and good grace and not ruining today by mourning yesterday's losses or fearing tomorrow's potential losses, to be like the lilies of the field and the birds of the heaven, which are present in the now, silent and obedient, to gather moments of joy with which she could warm herself if times get tough, she had a feeling that times might get tough.”
Vigdis Hjorth, Arv og miljø

“É estranho pensar na aleatoriedade com que aparentemente conhecemos pessoas que mais tarde se mostram cruciais no desenrolar da nossa vida: pessoas que afectam ou influenciam de modo directo as nossas decisões, originando assim mudanças de rumo na nossa vida. Ou não será assim tão aleatório?”
Vigdis Hjorth, Arv og miljø
