    Clive James (b. 1939)

    The world is for thousands a freak show; the images flicker past and vanish; the impressions remain flat and unconnected in the soul. Thus they are easily led by the opinions of others, are content to let their impressions be shuffled and rearranged and evaluated differently.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    The surest guide to the correctness of the path that women take is joy in the struggle. Revolution is the festival of the oppressed.
