There's no denying that candy is comfort food and it's affordable.
The state controlling a woman would mean denying her full autonomy and full equality.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Until women learn to want economic independence, and until they work out a way to get this independence without denying themselves the joys of love and motherhood, it seems to me feminism has no roots.
By limiting or denying freedom of speech and expression, we take away a lot of potential. We take away thoughts and ideas before they even have the opportunity to hatch. We build a world around negatives - you can't say, think, or do this or that.

Thomas A. Edison
I have mixed feelings about how fast things are changing as a result of technology.

Vilayanur S. Ramachandran
So thoroughly and sincerely are we compelled to live, reverencing our life, and denying the possibility of change.

Henry David Thoreau

Martin Luther King, Jr.
