The union, it was felt, was the more pregnant the more each party could contribute from previous sexual and spiritual intimacy with others.

I dare say you marvel sometimes at my independent way of walking through the world just as if nature had made me of your sex instead of poor Eve's. Trust me, my beloved friend, the mind has no sex but what habit and education give it, and I who was thrown in infancy upon the world like a wreck upon the waters have learned, as well to struggle with the elements as any male child of Adam.frances wright
The novel remains for me one of the few forms where we can record man’s complexity and the strength and decency of his longings.

Come, my beloved, let us go to the countryside, let us spend the night in the villages. Let us go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded, if their blossoms have opened, and if the pomegranates are in bloom there I will give you my love. The mandrakes send out their fragrance, and at our door is every delicacy, both new and old, that I have stored up for you, my beloved.
A cross borne in simplicity, without the interference of self-love to augment it, is only half a cross.
