    Meditation and water are wedded for ever.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    The real meditation is ... the meditation on one’s identity. Ah, voilĂ  une chose!! You try it. You try finding out why you’re you and not somebody else. And who in the blazes are you anyhow? Ah, voilĂ  une chose!
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    Masturbation is not only an expression of self-regard: it is also the natural emotional outlet of those who ... have already accepted as inevitable the wide gulf between their real futures and the expectations of their fantasies.
    Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)

    A method of child-rearing is not—or should not be—a whim, a fashion or a shibboleth. It should derive from an understanding of the developing child, of his physical and mental equipment at any given stage, and, therefore, his readiness at any given stage to adapt, to learn, to regulate his behavior according to parental expectations.
    Selma H. Fraiberg (20th century)

    It is unconscionable that we ration health care by the ability to pay.... your heart breaks. Health care should be a given.
    Kathryn Anastos (b. 1950)
