Let it all hang out. Let it seem bitchy, catty, dykey, frustrated, crazy, nutty, frigid, ridiculous, bitter, embarrassing, man-hating, libelous, pure, unfair, envious, intuitive, low- down, stupid, petty, liberating. We are the women that men have warned us about.
(Robin Morgan (b. 1941), U.S. author, feminist, and child actor. Goodbye to All That (January 1970).)
Just kids! That's about the craziest argument I've ever heard. Every criminal in the world was a kid once. What does it prove?

From an original idea by Irvine H. Millgate and actor name.)
He who considers disease results to be the disease itself, and expects to do away with these as diseases, is insane. It is an insanity in medicine, an insanity that has grown out of the milder forms of mental disorder in science, crazy whims.
(James Tyler Kent (1849-1916), U.S. homeopathic teacher, physician. Lectures on Homeopathic Philosophy, lecture 1 (1900).)
Look at this poet William Carlos Williams: he is primitive and native, and his roots are in raw forest and violent places; he is word-sick and place-crazy. He admires strength, but for what? Violence! This is the cult of the frontier mind.
(Edward Dahlberg (1900-1977), U.S. author, critic. "Word-Sick And Place-Crazy," Alms for Oblivion (1964).)
