"Then go if you must, but rest assured, wild, irrational as you are, my sister, you are truly dear to the ones who love you."

B

"Remember we are women, we're not born to contend with men. Then too, we're underlings, ruled by much stronger hands, so we must submit in this, and things still worse."

C

"You're wrong from the start, you're off on a hopeless quest."

D

"Yes, if you can, but you're in love with impossibility."

E

"I, for one, I'll beg the dead to forgive me -- I'm forced, I have no choice -- I must obey the ones who stand in power. Why rush to extremes? It's madness, madness."
