most of the quotes from #39

I do not want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal.
--Jane Austin

War is a time of heightened masculinity when women disappear off the public stage except as victims or supporters of their men. War in some terrible way is the final victory of gender hierarchies.
--Joan Nestle

Fruit is its own reward.

Once something is written down it exists in a way that is more like us.
--Mara Snider

The biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has occurred.
--GB Shaw

Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.
--Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

I wonder how the foreign policies of the United States would look if we wiped out the national boundaries of the world, at least in our minds, and thought of all children everywhere as our own. Then we could never drop an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, or napalm on Vietnam, or wage war anywhere, because wars, especially in our time, are always wars against children, indeed our children.
--Howard Zinn
