Quote Bullet

Every time a man unburdens his heart to a stranger he reaffirms the love that unites humanity.
~ Germaine Greer - [Strangers]

Quote Bullet

It is in our interests to let the police and their employers go on believing that the Underground is a conspiracy, because it increases their paranoia and their inability to deal with what is really happening. As long as they look for ringleaders and documents they will miss their mark, which is that proportion of every personality which belongs in the Underground.
~ Germaine Greer - [Twentieth Century]

The surest guide to the correctness of the path that women take is joy in the struggle. Revolution is the festival of the oppressed.
~ Germaine Greer - [Revolutions and Revolutionaries]

Security is when everything is settled. When nothing can happen to you. Security is the denial of life.

There is no such thing as security. There never has been.

Quote Bullet

Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark. The pleasure they give is steady, unorgastic, reliable, deep and long-lasting. In any library in the world, I am at home, unselfconscious, still and absorbed.
~ Germaine Greer - [Libraries]

Loneliness is never more cruel than when it is felt in close propinquity with someone who has ceased to communicate.
~ Germaine Greer - [Loneliness]

Quote Bullet

Love, love, love -- all the wretched cant of it, masking egotism, lust, masochism, fantasy under a mythology of sentimental postures, a welter of self-induced miseries and joys, blinding and masking the essential personalities in the frozen gestures of courtship, in the kissing and the dating and the desire, the compliments and the quarrels which vivify its barrenness.
~ Germaine Greer - [Love]

Quote Bullet

Every time a woman makes herself laugh at her husband's often-told jokes she betrays him. The man who looks at his woman and says ''What would I do without you?'' is already destroyed.
~ Germaine Greer - [Marriage]

Quote Bullet

All societies on the verge of death are masculine. A society can survive with only one man; no society will survive a shortage of women.
~ Germaine Greer - [Men]

Quote Bullet

The tragedy of machismo is that a man is never quite man enough.
~ Germaine Greer - [Men]

Quote Bullet

I have always been principally interested in men for sex. I've always thought any sane woman would be a lover of women because loving men is such a mess. I have always wished I'd fall in love with a woman. Damn.
~ Germaine Greer - [Men and Women]

Quote Bullet

Man made one grave mistake: in answer to vaguely reformist and humanitarian agitation he admitted women to politics and the professions. The conservatives who saw this as the undermining of our civilization and the end of the state and marriage were right after all; it is time for the demolition to begin.
~ Germaine Greer - [Men and Women]

Quote Bullet

Perhaps women have always been in closer contact with reality than men: it would seem to be the just recompense for being deprived of idealism.
~ Germaine Greer - [Men and Women]

Quote Bullet

All that remains to the mother in modern consumer society is the role of scapegoat; psychoanalysis uses huge amounts of money and time to persuade analysis and to foist their problems on to the absent mother, who has no opportunity to utter a word in her own defense. Hostility to the mother in our societies is an index of mental health.
~ Germaine Greer - [Mothers]

Quote Bullet

The only perfect love to be found on earth is not sexual love, which is riddled with hostility and insecurity, but the wordless commitment of families, which takes as its model mother-love. This is not to say that fathers have no place, for father-love, with its driving for self-improvement and discipline, is also essential to survival, but that uncorrected father-love, father-love as it were practiced by both parents, is a way to annihilation.
~ Germaine Greer - [Family]

I didn't fight to get women out from behind vacuum cleaners to get them onto the board of Hoover.
~ Germaine Greer - [Feminism]

Quote Bullet

The sight of women talking together has always made men uneasy; nowadays it means rank subversion.
~ Germaine Greer - [Feminism]

 

Report Error

Quote Bullet

There has come into existence, chiefly in America, a breed of men who claim to be feminists. They imagine that they have understood ''what women want'' and that they are capable of giving it to them. They help with the dishes at home and make their own coffee in the office, basking the while in the refulgent consciousness of virtue. Such men are apt to think of the true male feminists as utterly chauvinistic.
~ Germaine Greer - [Feminism]

Quote Bullet

Women's liberation, if it abolishes the patriarchal family, will abolish a necessary substructure of the authoritarian state, and once that withers away Marx will have come true willy-nilly, so let's get on with it.
~ Germaine Greer - [Feminism]
