"For ever since the light of reason first dawned on me, my inclination to letters was marked by such passion and vehemence that neither the reprimands of others (for I have received many) nor reflections of my own (there have been more than a few) have sufficed to make me abandon my pursuit of this native impulse that God himself bestowed on me."

—Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, quoted in "Where do women stand?" on Global Sisters Report
