Lara claims that the following 'contradictions' appear in The Thunder, Perfect Mind: "I am the virgin and the whore" and "the mother and the daughter". The first strictly speaking is a misquote, but it appears to be an amalgam of "I am the whore and the holy one...I am the wife and the virgin." The second adage is not misquoted. It does appear in The Thunder, Perfect Mind, but it is not really a contradiction. Lara, however, may be referring to another passage: "I am the mother of my father and the sister of my husband and he is my offspring."
