"We had been working hard and we were hungry…. There was much to be done. We were making a new life. It was not the Old West and there was no frontier but we were making a new life, starting from scratch. There was no thought of "romance" or "sex" but only of making a new life. We knew what we were doing.
The New Woman is the survivor of the catastrophe and death of the old worlds…. The worst thing that can happen to her has happened. The worst thing that can happen to me has happened. We are both survivors.”- Lancelot, written by Walker Percy
