— Heath Ledger Australian actor 1979 - 2008
As quoted in an interview in Vanity Fair (August 2000).
„Listen ladies, we were not born to be a man's play thing. We were not born to serve men... We are not less than or inferior to men. We are life. We give life. We nurture life. I don't understand how that's not a big deal but it should be a big deal. It's a great deal actually. We endure a hell of a lot of pain to keep the cycle of life going. Being treated less than essential, less than precious should not be tolerated. In fact, I don't even understand how it's allowed and normalized.“

We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Spirit. This Spirit is the matrix of all matter.“

— Kabir Indian mystic poet 1440 - 1518

If you have union now, you shall have it hereafter.
