„Queremos melhores razões para ter filhos do que não saber como evitá-las.“

—  Dora Russell, livro Hypatia

We want better reasons for having children than not knowing how to prevent them.
Fonte: Hypatia (1925), cap. 4

„Não queremos que o nosso mundo venha a perecer. Mas, na nossa busca de conhecimento, de século por século, nós colocamos toda a nossa confiança em um frio, imparcial intelecto que só traz-nos mais perto da destruição. Temos prestado nenhuma atenção a sabedoria oferecendo orientação. Só aprendendo a amar uns aos outros podemos salvar o nosso mundo. Só amor pode conquistar tudo.“

—  Dora Russell

We do not want our world to perish. But in our quest for knowledge, century by century, we have placed all our trust in a cold, impartial intellect which only brings us nearer to destruction. We have heeded no wisdom offering guidance. Only by learning to love one another can our world be saved. Only love can conquer all.

„It has taken us centuries of thought and mockery to shake the medieval system; thought and mockery here and now are required to prevent the mechanists from building another.“

—  Dora Russell

Preface
The Right to Be Happy (1927)
Contexto: It has taken us centuries of thought and mockery to shake the medieval system; thought and mockery here and now are required to prevent the mechanists from building another. Without falling into a mystical vitalism that reverences organic nature as sacred, we can at least try rather to serve than to subdue the prancing seas of life. With this in view I have taken as impulses, instincts, or needs certain driving forces in the human species as we know it at present, and argued for such social and economic changes as will give them new, free, and varied expression. To take even this first step towards a happy society is a herculean task. After it has been accomplished, generations to come will see what the creature will do next. We none of us know; and we should be thoroughly on our guard against all those who pretend that they do.

„Art that means anything in the life of a community must bear some relation to current interpretations of the mystery of the universe. Our rigid separation of the humanities and the sciences has temporarily left our art stranded or stammering and incoherent.“

Contexto: Art that means anything in the life of a community must bear some relation to current interpretations of the mystery of the universe. Our rigid separation of the humanities and the sciences has temporarily left our art stranded or stammering and incoherent. Both art and science ought to be blended in our early education of our children's emotions and powers of observation, and that harmony carried forward in later education.

„We want better reasons for having children than not knowing how to prevent them.“

—  Dora Russell, livro Hypatia

Hypatia (1925), Ch. 4
Contexto: We want better reasons for having children than not knowing how to prevent them. Nor should we represent motherhood as something so common and easy that everyone can go through it without harm or suffering and rear her children competently and well.

„To take even this first step towards a happy society is a herculean task. After it has been accomplished, generations to come will see what the creature will do next. We none of us know; and we should be thoroughly on our guard against all those who pretend that they do.“
