“The ovum wants only one thing: not to die unfertilized. All of those passions and poems, all of those rages and roses, all of that sexiness and subtlety with which humankind has adorned the sweet prelude to fertilization, are in the service of the ovum’s need. Empires fall, ids explode, great symphonies are written, and behind all of it is a single instinct that demands satisfaction – the ovum must have its way. So purposeful is the ovum in its quest that it figuratively contorts and drives the mind of humanity in ways we have barely begun to understand. With disguises and subterfuges to entrap and allure, the little seductress makes the goal so desirable that it sometimes seems beyond attainment, and therefore more to be pursued” (The Wisdom of the Body: Discovering the Human Spirit, p. 158).
