Natalie Portman, Women's March 2018: "That world we want to build is the opposite of puritanical. So I'd like to propose one way to continue moving this revolution forward, let's declare loud and clear 'this is what I want', 'this is what I need', 'this is what I desire', 'this is how you can help me achieve pleasure'. To people of all genders here with us today, let's find a space where we mutually consensually look out for each other's pleasure, and allow the vast limitless range of desire to be expressed. Let's make a revolution of desire!"
Marcel Proust: "Whatever be our social position, however wise our precautions, when the truth is confessed we have no hold over the life of another person. Why had she (Albertine) not said to me: “I have those tastes,” I would have yielded, would have allowed her to gratify them."
(French: Marcel Proust : "Que ce soient les conditions sociales, les prévisions de la sagesse, en vérité, on n'a pas de prises sur la vie d'un autre être. Pourquoi ne m'avait-elle (Albertine) pas dit : « J'ai ces goûts » ? J'aurais cédé, je lui aurais permis de les satisfaire." - Marcel Proust, A la recherche du temps perdu, Albertine disparue, Le Chagrin et l'Oubli)
