Famous quotes containing the words kate millett, millett and/or kate:

    Politics is repetition. It is not change. Change is something beyond what we call politics. Change is the essence politics is supposed to be the means to bring into being.
    Kate Millett (b. 1934)

    The revolution as we call it is not necessarily an uprising in the streets or the old business of seizing power. Though the Left has always imagined it was. The revolution is change. Not merely rearrangement, but a deep emotional type of transformation that must also take place inside us. It’s a better way to live.
    —Kate Millett (b. 1934)

    O slanderous world! Kate like the hazel twig
    Is straight and slender, and as brown in hue
    As hazelnuts, and sweeter than the kernels.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
