“I’m ashamed to have moaned so much in my letters. Don’t worry, my love, it’s only a superficial bad mood. Basically you write about things more than they exist, and that’s always because, at the moment of writing, you’re trying to describe an object — the gloomy world, or the wretchedness of life, etc. But if you try instead to make an hourly summary, there turns out to be not so much difference between the days and you’re neither as sad nor as unfortunate as all that.”

—   Simone de Beauvoir, from Letters To Sartre

“Women are described in animal terms as pets, cows, sows, foxes, chicks, serpents, bitches, beavers, old bats, old hens, mother hens, pussycats, cats, cheetahs, bird-brains, and hare-brains…‘Mother Nature’ is raped, mastered, conquered, mined; her secrets are ‘penetrated,’ her ‘womb’ is to be put into the service of the ‘man of science.’ Virgin timber is felled, cut down; fertile soil is tilled, and land that lies ‘fallow’ is ‘barren,’ useless. The exploitation of nature and animals is justified by feminizing them; the exploitation of women is justified by naturalizing them.”

"There’s one thing that you must realize," he said heatedly, "and that is that acceptance is always a matter of choice, love always a matter of preference. If you wait until you meet absolute perfection before getting involved, you’ll never love anyone and never do anything."
