In old age we should wish still to have passions strong enough to prevent us turning in on ourselves.
How to keep life from becoming a parody of itself – Simone de Beauvoir on the art of growing older (in a culture that treats it like a disease).

Woman has ovaries and a uterus; such are the particular conditions that lock her in her subjectivity; some even say she thinks with her hormones. Man vainly forgets that his anatomy also contains hormones and testicles. He grasps his body as a direct and normal link with the world that he believes he apprehends in all objectivity, whereas he considers woman's body an obstacle, a prison, burdened by everything that particularizes it.
Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex, 1949
