Conditioned Fear

Famous quotes containing the words conditioned and/or fear:

    Women born at the turn of the century have been conditioned not to speak openly of their wedding nights. Of other nights in bed with other men they speak not at all. Today a woman having bedded with a great general feels free to tell us that in bed the general could not present arms. Women of my generation would have spared the great general the revelation of this failure.
    Jessamyn West (1907–1984)

    To good and true love fear is forever affixed.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)
