  4. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

    It is not just because they dislike me as a person. In fact, I have had many a Republican come to me on the House floor and say' I tell folks back home that while I don't agree with you, I think you are a quite kind person.' I have had Republicans come up to me after the 6th, one of them even weeping and with guilt over what happened, so for some... publicly, this is a performance. But it is also personal because I can not separate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from my gender, I can not separate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of how I was born so their hatred of non-white people, their hatred of women is a hatred of me.

  5. Lucius Annaeus Seneca:

    All things are cause for either laughter or weeping.
