- "Words have meaning only in the stream of life"
- "Truth is disputable,
- "There are no dangerous thoughts, thinking itself is dangerous."
"...philosophy begins in wonder."
- "Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd."
- "There are no facts,
- "Objectivity is the methodological stance of which objectification is the social process."
- "...gender is a kind of imitation for which there is no original."
- "Action indeed is the sole medium of expression for ethics."
- "I wish that every human life might be pure transparent freedom."
-Simone de Beauvoir
