"On the day when it will be possible for woman to love not in her wekaness but in her stregnth, not to escape herself but to find herself, not to abase herself, but to assert herself- on that day love will become for her, as for man, a source of life and not of mortal danger.: Simone de Beauvoir

SIMONE DE BEAUVOIR; La Femme Rompue | 1967 ~ "My overflowing leisure handed me the world and at the same time prevented me from seeing it. Just as the sun, filtering through the closed venetian blinds on a hot afternoon, makes the whole magnificence of summer blaze in my mind; whereas if I face its direct harsh glare it blinds me”.
