Ina May Gaskin
“Remember this, for it is as true and true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body.”
Ina May Gaskin, Ina May's Guide to Childbirth

“It is in times of security that the spirit should be preparing itself for difficult times; while fortune is bestowing favors on it is then is the time for it to be strengthened against her rebuffs.”

Edna O'Brien
“In our deepest moments we say the most inadequate things.”
Edna O'Brien, A Fanatic Heart

J.M. Barrie
“He (Captain Hook) was never more sinister than when he was most polite, which is probably the truest test of breeding.”
J.M. Barrie

“There is no other organ quite like the uterus. If men had such an organ they would brag about it. So should we”
