    But chief to heedless flies the window proves
    A constant death; where gloomily retired,
    The villain spider lives, cunning and fierce,
    Mixture abhorred! Amid a mangled heap
    Of carcases in eager watch he sits,
    O’erlooking all his waving snares around.
    James Thomson (1700–1748)

    ... the constructive power of an image is not measured in terms of its truth, but of the love it inspires.
    Sarah Patton Boyle, U.S. civil rights activist and author. The Desegregated Heart, part 1, ch. 15 (1962)

    Of Eva first, that for hir wikkednesse
    Was al mankinde brought to wrecchednesse,
    For which that Jesu Crist himself was slain
    That boughte us with his herte blood again—
    Lo, heer expres of wommen may ye finde
    That womman was the los of al mankinde.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)

    War seems to be one of the most salutary phenomena for the culture of human nature; and it is not without regret that I see it disappearing more and more from the scene.
    Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt (1767–1835)

    Politics is still the man’s game. The women are allowed to do the chores, the dirty work, and now and then—but only occasionally—one is present at some secret conference or other. But it’s not the rule. They can go out and get the vote, if they can and will; they can collect money, they can be grateful for being permitted to work. But that is all.
    Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876–1958)

    The tops of mountains are among the unfinished parts of the globe, whither it is a slight insult to the gods to climb and pry into their secrets, and try their effect on our humanity. Only daring and insolent men, perchance, go there. Simple races, as savages, do not climb mountains,—their tops are sacred and mysterious tracts never visited by them. Pomola is always angry with those who climb the summit of Ktaadn.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Listening to a news broadcast is like smoking a cigarette and crushing the butt in the ashtray.
    Milan Kundera (b. 1929)

    The average Hollywood film star’s ambition is to be admired by an American, courted by an Italian, married to an Englishman and have a French boyfriend.
    Katharine Hepburn (b. 1909)

    In Washington, the first thing people tell you is what their job is. In Los Angeles you learn their star sign. In Houston you’re told how rich they are. And in New York they tell you what their rent is.
    Simon Hoggart (b. 1946)

    Self-love is the love of a man’s own self, and of everything else for his own sake. It makes people idolaters to themselves, and tyrants to all the world besides.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Photographs may be more memorable than moving images because they are a neat slice of time, not a flow. Television is a stream of underselected images, each of which cancels its predecessor. Each still photograph is a privileged moment, turned into a slim object that one can keep and look at again.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    The surest guide to the correctness of the path that women take is joy in the struggle. Revolution is the festival of the oppressed.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    Who that has heard a strain of music feared then lest he should speak extravagantly any more forever?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
