"It is told that Buddha, going out to look on life, was greatly daunted by death. 'They all eat on another' he cried, and called it evil. This process I examined, changed the verb, said, They all feed one another, and called it good."

—Charlotte Perkins Gilman, author and lecturer, from her 1935 autobiography
