    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    ... everybody who is human has something to express. Try not expressing yourself for twenty-four hours and see what happens. You will nearly burst. You will want to write a long letter or draw a picture or sing, or make a dress or a garden.
    Brenda Ueland (1891–1985)

    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)
