Love, the strongest and deepest element in all life, the harbinger of hope, of joy, of ecstasy; love, the defier of all laws, of all conventions; love, the freest, the most powerful molder of human destiny; how can such an all-compelling force be synonymous with that poor little State and Church-begotten weed, marriage?More Emma Goldman [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Before we can forgive one another, we have to understand one another.More Emma Goldman [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is essential that we realize once and for all that man is much more of a sex creature than a moral creature. The former is inherent, the other is grafted on.More Emma Goldman [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Every daring attempt to make a great change in existing conditions, every lofty vision of new possibilities for the human race, has been labeled Utopian.More Emma Goldman [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The higher mental development of woman, the less possible it is for her to meet a congenial male who will see in her, not only sex, but also the human being, the friend, the comrade and strong individuality, who cannot and ought not lose a single trait of her character.More Emma Goldman [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
