 Aldous Huxley - “You never see animals going through the absurd and often horrible fooleries of magic and religion. Dogs do not ritually urinate in the hope of persuading heaven to do the same and send down rain. Asses do not bray a liturgy to cloudless skies. Nor do cats attempt, by abstinence from cat's meat, to wheedle the feline spirits into benevolence. Only man behaves with such gratuitous folly. It is the price he has to pay for being intelligent but not, as yet, quite intelligent enough.”

 Irv DeGraw - “The market has been in abstinence and here's the first IPO and (the market) is going to have a binge. This IPO is getting more reward than it would have gotten before. It is a 'me-too' business-to-business service firm. There are a lot of other companies out there like it.”

 Bill Clinton - “I have no objection to promoting abstinence, but where that is not an option anymore, we should promote prevention strategies that work. I think that having it being driven by the grass roots up is the best way to go.”

And as more people find out what is being taught and what is being censored in these ineffective programs, more and more of these 'stay pure or we don't care about you' programs will be banned from public schools.”  
 James Wagoner - “Under his direction, HIV prevention programs have shifted from being based in public health science to being dictated by the abstinence-only-until-marriage ideology of the Bush administration.”
