When lovely woman stoops to follyand Paces about her room again, alone, She smoothes her hair with automatic hand, And puts a record on the gramophone. See Goldsmith 361:47.
A woman who cannot be a governess or a novel-writer must fall back on that poor little needle, the primitive and original handicraft of femininity.Margaret Oliphant
In civilized societies today ... clitoris envy, or womb envy, takes subtle forms. Man's constant need to disparage woman, to humble her, to deny her equal rights, and to belittle her achievements all are expressions of his innate envy and fear.elizabeth gould davis
Women's greater social desirability and beauty power afford opportunities for creating both measurable and invisible income. While the opportunities are available to almost all women and some men, they are available in abundance to the genetic celebrity ... a woman so beautiful that men do more than look and talk--they follow her.warren farrell
The really clever thing, in affairs of this sort, is not to win a woman already desired by everyone, but to discover such a prize while she is still unknown.
Ought not every woman, like every man, to follow the bent of her own talents?anne louise germaine de staël
Farewell woman, I intend, Henceforth, every night to sit, With my lewd well natured friend, Drinking, to engender wit.Rochester, John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of
God be thanked, the meanest of his creatures Boasts two soul-sides, one to face the world with, One to show a woman when he loves her!Robert Browning
Somehow that was one of the most poignant sights that immaculate woman, exquisitely dressed, and caked in blood.Lady Bird Johnson
All my house, But now, steamed like a bath with her thick breath. A lawyer could not have been heard; nor scarce Another woman, such a hail of words She has let fall.Ben Jonson
A woman is stripped of everything by them [saloons]. Her husband is torn from her; she is robbed of her sons, her home, her food, and her virtue; and then they strip her clothes off and hang her up bare in these dens of robbery and murder. Truly does the saloon make a woman bare of all things!
Oh, wasteful woman, she who may On her sweet self set her own price, Knowing man cannot choose but pay, How has she cheapened paradise: How given for naught her priceless gift, How spoiled the bread and spilled the wine, Which, spent with due, respective thrift, Had made brutes men, and men divine.
Nature wronged her in making her a woman. But for her sex she could have surpassed all the heros of history.catherine of aragon
Look outside the window, there's a woman being grabbedThey've dragged her to the bushes and now she's being stabbedMaybe we should call the cops and try to stop the painBut Monopoly is so much fun, I'd hate to blow the gameAnd I'm sure it wouldn't interest anybodyOutside of a small circle of friends.phil ochs
What a valiant woman. She braves the two greatest kings by land and sea. If she were not a heretic she would be worth a whole world.sixtus v (pope)
As if a woman of education bought things because she wanted 'em.john vanbrugh
I think that is Amanda’s whole stance; to feel most empowered as a woman is to have the choice to whether or not you dress up or dress down and to feel good about yourself either way. And that is truly the most empowering stance for a woman to take is to not have to comply either way because of a mans expectations of her.brian viglione
Unconscious assumptions or opinions are the worst enemy of woman; they can even grow into a positively demonic passion that exasperates and disgusts men, and does the woman herself the greatest injury by gradually smothering the charm and meaning of her femininity and driving it into the background. Such a development naturally ends in profound psychological disunion, in short, in a neurosis.carl jung
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for."
Man treats woman as his own property and not as being capable of feelings, like himself. The way man treats women is much worse than the way landlords treat servants and the high-caste treat the low-caste. These treat them so demeaningly only in situations mutually affecting them; but men treat cruelly and as slaves, from their birth till death.periyar e. v. ramasamy
The East and the West in the spring of the world shall blend As a man and a woman that plight Their troth in the warm spring night.
I am woman, hear me roar.
So I wonder a woman, the Mistress of Hearts, Should ascent to aspire to be Master of Arts; A Ministering Angel in woman we see, And an Angel need cover no other Degree. O why should a woman not get a Degree?
Souvent femme varie, Mal habil qui s'y fie woman is often fickle, Foolish the man who trusts her.Francis I
