Famous quotes containing the word biological:

    Biological possibility and desire are not the same as biological need. Women have childbearing equipment. For them to choose not to use the equipment is no more blocking what is instinctive than it is for a man who, muscles or no, chooses not to be a weightlifter.
    Betty Rollin (b. 1936)

    No further evidence is needed to show that “mental illness” is not the name of a biological condition whose nature awaits to be elucidated, but is the name of a concept whose purpose is to obscure the obvious.
    Thomas Szasz (b. 1920)

    No poetic phantasy
    but a biological reality,
    a fact: I am an entity
    like bird, insect, plant
    or sea-plant cell;
    I live; I am alive.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
