Isaac Asimov quotes ~
• “The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds the most discoveries, is not “Eureka!” (I found it!) but “That's funny...”
• “Outside intelligences, exploring the solar system with true impartiality, would be quite likely to enter the sun in their records thus: Star X, spectral class G0, 4 planets plus debris.”
• “I don't have the evidence to prove that God doesn't exist, but I so strongly suspect he doesn't that I don't want to waste my time.” ~ see Voices of Reason poster

Poet, novelist, diplomat, and social reformer Miguel Ángel Asturias was awarded the 1967 Nobel Prize in Literature “for his vivid literary achievement, deep-rooted in the national traits and traditions of Indian peoples of Latin America.”

Miquel Angel Asturias quote ~
• “Rise and demand; you are a burning flame.
You are sure to conquer there where the final horizon
Becomes a drop of blood, a drop of life,
Where you will carry the universe on your shoulders,
Where the universe will bear your hope.”

Mary Astell

Mary Astell
b. 11-12-1666; Newcastle upon Tyne, England
d. 5-11-1731; breast cancer

Considered the first English feminist, author Mary Astell advocated an education for women that would extend their choices beyond being only either a mother, or a nun.

Astell's best known books, A Serious Proposal to the Ladies, for the Advancement of Their True and Greatest Interest (1694) and A Serious Proposal, Part II (1697), were outlines of a new type of institution, a protected environment, for women to assist in providing women with both religious and secular education.

Mary Astell quotes ~
• “If all Men are born free, how is it that all Women are born Slaves?”
• “Women are not so well united as to form an Insurrection. They are for the most part wise enough to love their chains, and to discern how becomingly they fit.”
