For today’s quote, I choose a quote from the book I’m currently reading- The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin
Kimoe stared at him, shocked out of politeness. “But the loss of-of everything feminine-of delicacy-and the loss of masculine self-respect- you can’t pretend surely, in your work, that women are your equals? In physics, in mathematics, in the intellect? You can’t pretend to lower yourself constantly to their level?”
“I don’t think I pretend very much, Kimoe,” he said.
I love this quote. There’s something very powerful about it and it’s one of the passages that made me start to really think about what the author wants to convey in her work. It made me start to ask about the underlying themes she wants to present.
