Famous quotes containing the words society, evangelical and/or missionary:
“We are seeing an increasing level of attacks on the selfishness of women. There are allegations that all kinds of social ills, from runaway children to the neglected elderly, are due to the fact that women have left their rightful place in the home. Such arguments are simplistic and wrongheaded but women are especially vulnerable to the accusation that if society has problems, its because women arent nurturing enough.”
—Grace Baruch (20th century)
“Chastity is a monkish and evangelical superstition, a greater foe to natural temperance even than unintellectual sensuality.”
—Percy Bysshe Shelley (17921822)
“The missionary is no longer a man, a conscience. He is a corpse, in the hands of a confraternity, without family, without love, without any of the sentiments that are dear to us.... Emasculated, in a sense, by his vow of chastity, he offers us the distressing spectacle of a man deformed and impotent or engaged in a stupid and useless struggle with the sacred needs of the flesh, a struggle which, seven times out of ten, leads him to sodomy, the gallows, or prison.”
—Paul Gauguin (18481903)
