"Most women defend themselves. It is the female of the species -- it is the tigress and lioness in you -- which tends to defend when attacked."
Author: Thatcher Quotes Category: Women Quotes
"I repeat, sir, that in whatever position you place a woman she is an ornament to society and a treasure to the world. As a sweetheart, she has few equals and no superiors; as a cousin, she is convenient; as a wealthy grandmother with an incurable distemper, she is precious; as a wet-nurse, she has no equal among men. What, sir, would the people of the earth be without woman? They would be scarce, sir, almighty scarce."
"Every woman is a rebel, and usually in wild revolt against herself."
"When you're left wounded on Afganistan's plains and the women come out to cut up what remains, Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains, And go to your God like a soldier"

"There are only two types of women - goddesses and doormats"
Author: Picasso Quotes Category: Women Quotes
"For my part I distrust all generalizations about women, favorable and unfavorable, masculine and feminine, ancient and modern; all alike, I should say, result from paucity of experience."
Author: Russell Quotes Category: Women Quotes
"A woman cannot do the thing she ought, which means whatever perfect thing she can, in life, in art, in science, but she fears to let the perfect action take her part and rest there: she must prove what she can do before she does it, -- prate of woman's rights, of woman's mission, woman's function, till the men (who are prating, too, on their side) cry, ''A woman's function plainly is... to talk.'' Poor souls, they are very reasonably vexed!"

Author: Pope Quotes Category: Women Quotes

"There's nothing so similar to one poodle dog as another poodle dog, and that goes for women, too"
Author: Picasso Quotes Category: Women Quotes
"Father Time is not always a hard parent, and, though he tarries for none of his children, often lays his hand lightly upon those who have used him well; making them old men and women inexorably enough, but leaving their hearts and spirits young and in full vigor. With such people the gray head is but the impression of the old fellow's hand in giving them his blessing, and every wrinkle but a notch in the quiet calendar of a well-spent life."
"The one woman who never gives herself is your free woman, who is always giving herself."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: Women Quotes
"Eve is a twofold mystery."
Author: Browning Quotes Category: Women Quotes Mystery Quotes

Author: Eliot Quotes Category: Women Quotes
"It requires nothing less than a chivalric feeling to sustain a conversation with a lady."
"Two women seldom grow intimate but at the expense of a third person"
Author: Swift Quotes Category: Women Quotes
"That's the nature of women, not to love when we love them, and to love when we love them not."
Author: Cervantes Quotes Category: Women Quotes
"But I am sure that I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round...as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely."
Author: Dickens Quotes Category: Women Quotes
"The works of women are symbolical. We sew, sew, prick our fingers, dull our sight, producing what? A pair of slippers, sir, to put on when you're weary -- or a stool. To stumble over and vex you... ''curse that stool!'' Or else at best, a cushion, where you lean and sleep, and dream of something we are not, but would be for your sake. Alas, alas! This hurts most, this... that, after all, we are paid the worth of our work, perhaps."
