„Every animal is sad after coitus except the human female and the rooster.“
Triste est omne animale post coitum, praeter mulierem gallumque

„Nature provides exceptions to every rule.“

— Margaret Fuller American feminist, poet, author, and activist 1810 - 1850
Context: Male and female represent the two sides of the great radical dualism. But, in fact, they are perpetually passing into one another. Fluid hardens to solid, solid rushes to fluid. There is no wholly masculine man, no purely feminine woman. History jeers at the attempts of physiologists to bind great original laws by the forms which flow from them. They make a rule; they say from observation what can and cannot be. In vain! Nature provides exceptions to every rule. She sends women to battle, and sets Hercules spinning; she enables women to bear immense burdens, cold, and frost; she enables the man, who feels maternal love, to nourish his infant like a mother.

„I am convinced that human continuance depends entirely upon: the intuitive wisdom of each and every individual“

— Buckminster Fuller American architect, systems theorist, author, designer, inventor and futurist 1895 - 1983
Context: I am convinced that human continuance depends entirely upon: the intuitive wisdom of each and every individual... the individual's integrity of speaking and acting only on the individual's own within-self-intuited and reasoned initiative... the individual's never joining action with others as motivated only by crowd-engendered-emotionalism, or a sense of the crowd's power to overwhelm, or in fear of holding to the course indicated by one's own intellectual convictions.
