„Prs je nejprůhlednější způsob, kterým tělo může vzdát úctu kruhu. “

„We are made of stardust; why not take a few moments to look up at the family album?“ The Canon: A Whirligig Tour of the Beautiful Basics of Science


„Women never bought Freud's idea of penis envy: who would want a shotgun when you can have an automatic?“ Woman: An Intimate Geography

„Scientists have discovered that the small brave act of cooperating with another person, of choosing trust over cynicism, generosity over selfishness, makes the brain light up with quiet joy.“

„The clitoris not only applauds when a women flaunts her mastery; it will give a standing ovation. In the multiple orgasm, we see the finest evidence that our lady Klitoris helps those who help themselves. It may take many minutes to reach the first summit, but once there the lusty mountaineer finds wings awaiting her. She does noy need to scramble back to the ground before scaling the next peak, but can glide like a raptor on currents of joy.“ Woman: An Intimate Geography

„Perhaps eggs are like neurons, which also are not replenished in adulthood: they know too much. Eggs must plan the party. Sperm need only to show up- wearing top hat and tails, of course.“ Woman: An Intimate Geography

„We are all yeses. We are worthy enough, we passed inspection, we survived the great fetal oocyte extinctions. In that sense, at least -- call it a mechanospiritual sense -- we are meant to be. We are good eggs, every one of us.“ Woman: An Intimate Geography

„What is wrong with looking muscular? Muscles are beautiful. Strength is beautiful. Muscle tissue is beautiful. It is metabolically, medically, and philosophically beautiful. Muscles retreat when they're not used, but they will always come back if you give them good reason. No matter how old you get, your muscles never lose hope. Few cells of the body are as capable as muscle cells are of change and reformation, of achievement and transcendence.“ Woman: An Intimate Geography


„Touch is... one of the most ancient transactions, a defiance of the plasma membrane and the loneliness it brought.“ Woman: An Intimate Geography

„You have your opinion, I have mine, and it takes all kinds of nuts and dips to make a party, right?“ The Canon: A Whirligig Tour of the Beautiful Basics of Science

„Nobody knows what the whales may have to click and clack about, but it could be a form of voting-time to stop here and synchronously dive down in search of deep water squid, now time to resurface, move on, dive again. Clans also seem to caucus on which males they like and will mate with more or less as a group and which ones to collectively spurn. By all appearances, female sperm whales are terrible size queens. Over the generations, they have consistently voted in favor of enhanced male mass. Their dream candidate nowadays is some fellow named Moby, and he's three times their size.“

„We may love men and we may live with men, but some of them have said stupendously inaccurate things about us, our bodies, and our psyches.“ Woman: An Intimate Geography


„I'm an Atheist. I don't believe in God, Gods, Godlets or any sort of higher power beyond the universe itself, which seems quite high and powerful enough to me. I don't believe in life after death, channeled chat rooms with the dead, reincarnation, telekinesis or any miracles but the miracle of life and consciousness, which again strike me as miracles in nearly obscene abundance. I believe that the universe abides by the laws of physics, some of which are known, others of which will surely be discovered, but even if they aren't, that will simply be a result, as my colleague George Johnson put it, of our brains having evolved for life on this one little planet and thus being inevitably limited. I'm convinced that the world as we see it was shaped by the again genuinely miraculous, let's even say transcendent, hand of evolution through natural selection.“

„Eternal love is a myth, but we make our myths, and we love them to death.“ Woman: An Intimate Geography

„Giving a girl the impression that girlhood is an extended bounce on Barney's knee is like prepping a young gazelle for life on the Serengeti by dipping it in cream.“ Woman: An Intimate Geography

„Our minds hurtled outward in all directions. We became absurdly creative,, intolerant of bare cave walls and naked clay pots.“ Woman: An Intimate Geography
