""The history of genetic variation holds within it the countless bodies of the dead, the mutilated, the tortured, the irredeemable, the unwanted, as well as the brilliant talents that have gone unrecognized and unacknowledged – all those unknown, forgotten humans relegated to the rubbish heap of history. It is these wounded souls, these tortured histories, that roam the interstices of the question of variation."" May 26, 2020 05:18AM

Virginia Woolf
“This is my right; it is the right of every human being. I choose not the suffocating anesthetic of the suburbs, but the violent jolt of the Capital, that is my choice. The meanest patient, yes, even the very lowest is allowed some say in the matter of her own prescription. Thereby she defines her humanity. I wish, for your sake, Leonard, I could be happy in this quietness. [pause]But if it is a choice between Richmond and death, I choose death..”
Virginia Woolf

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“Teach her to question language. Language is the repository of our prejudices, our beliefs, our assumptions.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions

Henri Bergson
“all that we have felt, thought and willed from our earliest infancy is there, leaning over the present which is about to join it, pressing against the portals of consciousness that would fain leave it outside.”
Henri Bergson, Creative Evolution

Mary Beard
“When it comes to silencing women, Western culture has had thousands of years of practice.”
Mary Beard, Women & Power: A Manifesto

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“So teach Chizalum that biology is an interesting and fascinating subject, but she should never accept it as justification for any social norm. Because social norms are created by human beings, and there is no social norm that cannot be changed.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions
