We reach a moment when we have to discuss quotes a little bit, not just to share and enjoy them. I found a quote wich made me think. Rabbi Sofer is the author.
“No woman is required to build the world by destroying herself.” – Rabbi Sofer

Not necessity, not desire – no, the love of power is the demon of men. Let them have everything – health, food, a place to live, entertainment – they are and remain unhappy and low-spirited: for the demon waits and waits and will be satisfied.
Not when truth is dirty, but when it is shallow, does the enlightened man dislike to wade into its waters.
Nothing has been purchased more dearly than the little bit of reason and sense of freedom which now constitutes our pride.
