Lois Kessler, on the last day of class

This is what Lois Kessler, San Diego State University, told students in her classes on the last day of classes (Women’s Studies, Human Sexuality):

There is a dimension of human experience that we have not really touched on this term and I’d like to say a few words regarding that aspect. It has to do with mutual respect, the lack of interest to exploit acceptance of equality, intimacy, and involvement. It has to do with compassion, warmth, tenderness transcending the self. If I had just one wish for each and every one of you, I would wish you the most fragile of all human conditions.

I would wish you love.
