Margaret Fuller: The Great Radical Dualism

(courtesy of Today in Literature)

"Male and female represent the two sides of the great radical dualism. But, in fact, they are perpetually passing into one another. Fluid hardens to solid, solid rushes to fluid. There is no wholly masculine man, no purely feminine woman."

Margaret Fuller, the New England Transcendentalist and feminist, born on this day in 1810

I was thinking perhaps that could be the "El-Oso" from the popular blogger, but alas, 'twas not. I didn't think many people would refer to themselves as "The bear". Then again, I call myself an radio used for airplanes, so who am I to talk?
