"What great evil has man committed that he deserves this terrifying partner called woman? It seems to me that with such violently contradictory thoughts and so clearly opposed impulses, the only possible relationship between the sexes is that of victor and vanquished."

- Vallotton (from his posthumously-published novel, "La Vie Meurtriere").

Picture: "The Kiss" by Felix Vallotton (1898).
