Rainer Maria Rilke
“Someday there will be girls and women whose name will no longer mean the mere opposite of the male, but something in itself, something that makes one think not of any complement and limit, but only life and reality: the female human being.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

“When they (the men, the scavengers)
come for you, do not give yourself
to them so easily.

Wear your strength like armour,
fight like a beast.
Do not let them tell you that
you belong to them.

Be fearless.
Be a lion.
Be like lava.
Rip them apart,
and burn their bones.

And when you are done,
tell the world that
you belong to no man.
That you are a lady,
a warrior,
a tsunami,
and you belong only to yourself.”
Zaeema J. Hussain, The Sky Is Purple

Henry Miller
“You can forgive a young cunt anything. A young cunt doesn't have to have brains. They're better without brains. But an old cunt, even if she's brilliant, even if she's the most charming woman in the world, nothing makes any difference. A young cunt is an investment; an old cunt is a dead loss. All they can do for you is buy you things. But that doesn't put meat on their arms or juice between their legs.”
Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer

“The ethereal beauty of the female semblance conceals that they really are dangerous like a great white shark in the most peaceful and deep water.
(quote from the exhibit at the Cultural Museum)”

“For far too long, the female gender has been plagued with stereotypes, typecasting, as well as, subtle and blatant discrimination.”
Asa Don Brown

“When you're younger you're so happy to get some good loving you convince yourself you're in love, can't live with out it, and chase the dick like a crack addict after the pipe, or chase the bad sex hoping something happened to the man over night and the next time it'll be good.”
Jill Nelson, Sexual Healing

R. Alan Woods

“Women have this amazing godly power. As an enemy, they can wreak havoc and behead you like Goddess Kali without even flinching or giving it a second thought. But as healers and nurturers, they can absorb all your pain like an infinite sponge, if they want to. All it took was a little touch of femininity, and I felt alive once again.”
Abhaidev, The World's Most Frustrated Man

Zeyn Joukhadar
“I'm not the only one, of course. The last time I saw one of my male classmates from art school, he consoled me about my artist's block by telling me how few of the girls we studied with were painting anymore. It one one thing to have a body; it is another thing to struggle under the menacing weight of its meaning.”
Zeyn Joukhadar, The Thirty Names of Night

Margot Berwin
“I turned just in time to witness closing time on a vine of moonflowers. Their bright-white petals glowed under moonlight and shut down at the first hint of daylight. I stood there mesmerized, watching their twelve-inch-wide dinner-plate-sized flowers simultaneously folding up to nothing, like hundreds of slamming doors. I'd always thought of flowers as still and beautiful. It was strange to see them in such a blur of self-generated motion.
Sonali had mentioned the moonflower. She'd told me if I ever came across one not to cut it or take it out of the earth. I remembered her exact words:
The vine of the moonflower is an umbilical cord connecting all women to the moon. Take special notice of the plants, such as this one, that jump out at you in the moonlight, lost in the daytime to louder, more vibrant types. They are females. They will help heal the female parts of you that have been hurt.
Margot Berwin, Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire

Steven Magee
“I took my parents and past girlfriend up to the very high altitude summit of Mauna Kea to visit the W. M. Keck Observatory. The plan was to spend a few hours at the summit, but after half an hour the females became sickly and we had to leave.”
Steven Magee

Geoffrey Miller
“Under natural selection, species adapt to their environments. When the environment refers to a species' physical habitat, this seems simple enough. If a species lives in the Arctic, it had better evolve some warm fur. Under sexual selection, species adapt too, but they adapt to themselves. Females adapt to males, and males adapt to females. Sexual preferences adapt to the sexual ornaments avaliable, and sexual ornaments adapt to sexual preferences.”
Geoffrey Miller, The Mating Mind: How Sexual Choice Shaped the Evolution of Human Nature

Stewart Stafford
“The Feminine Enigma by Stewart Stafford

Even lying in repose in her casket,
Her aura still a billowing haze,
A coffin lid no barrier to new facts,
She came back on her funeral day.

Creeping sentinels of perspective,
Building up new memory mosaics,
A spider's web of word and deed,
Descending Prozac of the prosaic.

The labyrinthine riddle is female,
Females are perennially arcane,
Puzzles that don't beg solutions,
Evening stars of the astral plane.

Karl Kristian Flores
“Olivia had to pretend. Life moved very fast to her. She was so often approached by men, who saw a full body that looked even better trying to hide. Boys in school said one thing to her, then another, and soon the wolves swayed the girl toward their dens. She had to pretend she was in control, that she had a choice, rather than reveal that ever since her body volumized, she had no idea what was going on or who she was. It was the curse of a body that grows faster than the girl inside it.”
Karl Kristian Flores, A Happy Ghost

“Last night,” he said, reminiscently, “you bound my arm—the merest scratch! with all the tenderness of which a woman is capable when her compassion is aroused. Today, you propose to shoot me in cold blood for no better reason than that I will not gratify your curiosity! It has been truly said that females are strange creatures!”
Alice Chetwynd Ley, The Guinea Stamp
