Misc. Quotes
(Interesting or pithy quotes from the book)
“Sexuality is an integrating component of the life concept.  Just as all animal existence is linked to sex, so also does sex rule life’s shape and course.  Sex is at once the root and the crown of every higher form of life.  Without it there can be no animal life and, concomitantly, life devoid of sex can be neither real nor complete.”
