„And this is a disease of the mind, the way I see it. Because in actual fact, men and women have much more in common than they are separated.“

Salon interview (1997)
Kontext: I'm always astounded at the way we automatically look at what divides and separates us. We never look at what people have in common. If you see it, black and white people, both sides look to see the differences, they don't look at what they have together. Men and women, and old and young, and so on. And this is a disease of the mind, the way I see it. Because in actual fact, men and women have much more in common than they are separated.
