O world, why do you wish to persecute me? How do I offend you, when I intend only to fix beauty in my intellect, & never my intellect fix on beauty?I do not set store by treasures or riches; & therefore it always brings me more joy only to fix riches in my intellect, & never my intellect fix on riches.I do not set store by a lovely face that, vanquished, is civil plunder of the ages, & perfidious wealth has never pleased me,for I deem it best, as one of my truths, to deplete the vanities of this life & never this life to deplete in vanities. ― Juana Inés de la Cruz, Sor Juana Ines de La Cruz: Selected Writings
