Marion Hilliard

  • ... first let me discuss sex in marriage. It's a relationship potentially as lovely and as lethal as a rope bridge over a chasm ...

  • Another of the areas of difference between the sex act of men and women is distraction. Not much, short of ridicule or a gun barrel between his eyes, can distract a man during the act of love. There is very little in civilization that won't distract a woman and rob her of her joy.

  • Nothing so withers fear as examination. No one should ever be afraid alone. It is the worst form of loneliness and the most corrosive.

  • I was once asked for my definition of living in sin. It's this: any two people living together while one dominates and tyrannizes the other are, to me, living in sin.

  • Female biology can illuminate or desolate — but it can never be underestimated.

  • Much of the fault for the current mood of nameless longing that is sweeping modern housewives is to be found in their so-called blessings.

  • In addition to the havoc it causes in the human body, fear strangles personality, murders logic, humor, and the ability to love.

  • ... fear of cancer is a fear of the unknown. It is a mysterious blackness with a ghoul's name and a sadist's reputation.

  • ... old people fear living far more than they do dying.

  • Stress and fatigue are modern calamities, the result of the run-run-run environment of our hurrying civilization.

  • Retirement, I feel, means a new adventure in living — not a stopping.

  • Nothing in life is as glorious as reaching beyond capacity.

Marion Hilliard, Canadian physician

(1902 - 1958)
