Transcript of Your thoughts are the architects of your destiny.

"Your thoughts are the architects of your destiny."
~David O. McKay
“It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Designing your Destiny
Tepper employs the bull and cow metaphor to expose that inequality exists and manifest her support for the "upstander"
Tepper creates a dramatic scene with religious elements to highlight the hypocrisy of the Holylanders, despite their justification for their oppressive practices.
"She is holy"
Yet, Tepper questions the possibility of ever achieving true equality through her depiction of men as the oppressed and Morgot's reveal of the "damned few".
"We let our warrior bulls believe they father sons" (293)
Tepper illustrates a futuristic Earth to examine the difficulties that arise with striving for equality. Although she praises the notion of achieving this ideal, Tepper questions the possibility of ever truly forming an equal society.
