    Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)

    The most threatened group in human societies as in animal societies is the unmated male: the unmated male is more likely to wind up in prison or in an asylum or dead than his mated counterpart. He is less likely to be promoted at work and he is considered a poor credit risk.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    What has ever threatened our liberty and prosperity save and except this institution of Slavery?
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
