It's harder to kill something that is spiritually alive than it is to bring the dead back to life
- Herman Hesse.
The quest now would be called women. Poets, writers, vocalists, entrepreneurs, beauty contest winners, musicians, girls next door, simple straight women, complex eccentric psychotic women, Nobel laureates, women in science and gymnastics, women in Philosophy, Maths and History, communist women, women in the United Nations, doctors, teachers, friends, soft tender gentle women, women who stand up for what they believe, women with convictions, women without convictions, women seemingly without convictions, traditional women, conservative women, unconventional women, unapologetic women, women who are proud, women who are just too cute, women who want to but can't, women who write comics, artists, actresses, movie makers, hairdressers, ice cream makers, attorneys, women who make a difference, women who don't make a difference, women who try, women who try really hard, winners, seeming winners, losers, seeming losers, women who play good chess, women who live by choice and those that don't.

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself."
-- Friedrich Nietzsche
Yeah, the struggle to not get 'overwhelmed' is precious in itself.
