When I Make Myself Imagine 

"When I make myself imagine what it is like to be one of those women who live at home, faithfully serving their husbands - women who have not a single exciting prospect in life yet who believe that they are perfectly happy - I am filled with scorn. Often they are of quite good birth, yet have had no oppertunity to find out what the world is like. I wish they could live for a while in our society...so that they might come to know the delights it has to offer."

- From Sei Shonagon's Pillow Book
