You have got a sort of smattering of recent discoveries in various fields -- discoveries that seem to overthrow certain principles which have hitherto been held impregnable and unassailable. But all this has only been a matter of intellect, Miss West -- superficial acquisition. It has not passed into your blood.
~ Henrik Ibsen - [Feminism]

I think we can agree it's the fools, no matter where you go in this world, it's the fools that form the overwhelming majority.
~ Henrik Ibsen - [Democracy]
