Per Daniel Amadeus Atterbom said:
"Sometimes nature itself makes exceptions and puts positive, masculine genius in a female body. From this anomaly come educated women, artists, and heroines, of whom three or four have justifiably  won the world's admiration. Their lot, however, is not to be desired. They must surrender all claim to female happiness."
