problem of woman





The mediaeval ascetics hated women and thought they were created by God for the temptation of monks. One may be allowed to think more nobly both of God and of woman. If a woman has tempted thee, is it her fault or thine? Be not a fool and a self-deceiver. There are two ways of avoiding the snare of woman, one is to shun all women and the other to love all beings.

After I knew that God was a woman, I learned something from far-off about love; but it was only when I became a woman and served my Master and Paramour that I knew love utterly.
