#1. Just as women fought for the vote, and that very achievement compels us to the polling stations, so women have fought for the right to exercise and participate in sport, and we cannot throw that away. From the women of ancient Greece putting their lives on the line just by watching sport, and the women in Iran who continue to risk imprisonment today by doing the same, to the likes of Kathrine Switzer who campaigned for women to be allowed to run any distance they liked, or Caster Semenya and Dutee Chand who demand the right to participate in sport as women, without being told what their labia should look like. We - Author: Anna Kessel
Women quotes by Anna Kessel
#2. The only place men want depth in their women is in their décolletage - Author: Zsa Zsa Gabor
Women quotes by Zsa Zsa Gabor
#3. Men and women are brothers and sisters; they are not of different species; and what need be obtained to know both, but to allow for different modes of education, for situation and constitution, or perhaps I should rather say, for habits, whether good or bad. - Author: Samuel Richardson
Women quotes by Samuel Richardson
#4. We don't need any more reality TV, women yelling at each other. I can't watch that stuff. - Author: Andie MacDowell
Women quotes by Andie MacDowell
#5. In short, we would discover, as we should already, that logic is in the eye of the logician. (For instance, here's an idea for theorists and logicians: if women are supposed to be less rational and more emotional at the beginning of our menstrual cycle when the female hormone is at its lowest level, then why isn't it logical to say that, in those few days, women behave the most like the way men behave all month long? I leave further improvisation up to you.) - Author: Gloria Steinem
Women quotes by Gloria Steinem
#6. There are people, primarily women!
who are what I call 'conduits of emotion.' In their company, the half dead can come alive. They need not be beautiful women or girls. It's a matter of blood warmth. The integrity of the spirit." He turned the page of his sketch pad and began anew, whistling thinly through his teeth.
"Thus an icy-cold soul, in the presence of one so blessed, can regain something of his lost self. Sometimes! - Author: Joyce Carol Oates
Women quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#7. The truth is there are two hundred white women raped in America by a black man for every one black woman raped by whites. - Author: David Duke
Women quotes by David Duke
#8. Quite simply, I love newspapers and the men and women who make them. Newspapers have given me a full, rich life. They have provided me with a ringside seat at some of the most extraordinary events in my time on the planet. They have been my university. They have helped feed, house and educate my children. I want them to go on and on and on. - Author: Pete Hamill
Women quotes by Pete Hamill
#9. I am not satisfied in making money for myself. I endeavor to provide employment for hundreds of the women of my race. - Author: Madam C. J. Walker
Women quotes by Madam C. J. Walker
#10. A woman is like a universe; there are many things that even she still needs to discover about herself. Men on the other hand are miners, which means they are in a better position to uncover, perceive and appreciate things about women that they themselves have not yet come to the full realization of. Men know more about women than they can tell (it's for their own safety that they keep their mouths shut and pretend like they don't know anything, lest they get slammed for claming to know anything at all about women in the first place). Sadly, women are losing out on a wealth of knowledge and understanding about themselves by debunking men's ideas and notions about them especially when it comes to their femininity and sensuality. I think there is a need for women to start gently and safely asking men what they 'inherently' know about their femininity. I'm not a chauvinist nor a proponent for men's rights, but I strongly believe that men hold the keys to a lot of treasure chests that most women are daily striving to open up. Perhaps you should start inviting your man to get a little bit more involved in your feminine/sensual journey. It's only a suggestion... - Author: Lebo Grand
Women quotes by Lebo Grand
#11. I like playing smart, savvy, sexy women
because it's so not me! - Author: Amanda Tapping
Women quotes by Amanda Tapping
#12. Me? I was obsessed with serial killers. More specifically, I was obsessed with the idea of female serial killers. Hear the phrase serial killer, and most of us probably picture a man. It's not surprising - let's be real, men are responsible for at least ninety-two percent of the evil in the world. For centuries, women have been socially programmed to be the nurturers, after all - the protectors, the emotional bridges - so when we hear of a woman who takes life instead of creating it, it's instinctively shocking. - Author: Christina Lauren
Women quotes by Christina Lauren
#13. I think they're gentle," she mutters.

"For Christ's sake, Ruth, they're aliens!"

"I'm used to it," she says absently.

- 'The Women Men Don't See - Author: James Tiptree Jr.
Women quotes by James Tiptree Jr.
#14. The women that I picked spoke sweet and low
And yet gave tongue. "Hound voices" were they all. - Author: William Butler Yeats
Women quotes by William Butler Yeats
#15. We judge individual man and women as we do nations and races
by the character of their achievement and by their achievement of character. - Author: Edward Abbey
Women quotes by Edward Abbey
#16. The truth is that men don't want to be friends with women. Men know they don't understand women, and they don't much care. They want women as lovers, as wives, as mothers, but they're not really interested in them as friends. They have friends. Men are their friends. And they talk to their male friends about sports, and I have no idea what else.
Women, on the other hand, are dying to be friends with men. Women know they don't understand men, and it bothers them: they think that if only they could be friends with them, they would understand them and, what's more (and this is their gravest mistake), it would help. - Author: Nora Ephron
Women quotes by Nora Ephron
#17. We Persian women certainly know how to hold our tongues, but when emotions flare, we say it, and say it hot. Maybe Middle-Eastern weather creates residents who feel and respond in ways bizarre to the rest of the world. I'm sure culture and weather connect in some way. - Author: Michael Ben Zehabe
Women quotes by Michael Ben Zehabe
#18. If we're not growing, we must feel guilty, because we are not fulfilling Christ's demand. - Author: Eva Burrows
Women quotes by Eva Burrows
#19. In a kinder world," he whispered, "one I promise you I've seen, men and women flirt and dance and love with only the fear of what it would mean without the other in their lives. - Author: Melina Marchetta
Women quotes by Melina Marchetta
#20. I don't think men talk as much as women, but when we have something on our minds we'll get it out. - Author: Ray Romano
Women quotes by Ray Romano
#21. The unmarried woman seldom escapes a widowhood of the spirit. There is sure to be some one, parent, brother, sister, friend, more comfortable to her than the day, with whom her life is so entwined that the wrench of parting leaves a torn void never entirely healed or filled ... - Author: Charlotte Mary Yonge
Women quotes by Charlotte Mary Yonge
#22. No matter how much women prefer to lean, to be protected and supported, nor how much men desire to have them do so, they must make the voyage of life alone, and for safety in an emergency they must know something of the laws of navigation. - Author: Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Women quotes by Elizabeth Cady Stanton
#23. Too much intimacy, too quickly, can cause women to become needy and men to pull away. Just as men have a tendency to rush into physical intimacy, women make the mistake of rushing into complete emotional intimacy. - Author: John Gray
Women quotes by John Gray
#24. I believe, as they say, that you can't be what you don't see, and since I saw a lot of smart women in my life, education being at the center, I just mimicked that behavior. - Author: Eva Longoria
Women quotes by Eva Longoria
#25. The last young lady I met stabbed me. You know I'm cursed when it comes to women. - Author: Trudi Canavan
Women quotes by Trudi Canavan
#26. Girls and women, in their new, particular unfolding, will only in passing imitate men's behavior and misbehavior and follow in male professions. Once the uncertainty of such transitions is over it will emerge that women have only passed through the spectrum and the variety of those (often laughable) disguises in order to purify their truest natures from the distorting influences of the other sex. Women, in whom life abides and dwells more immediately, more fruitfully and more trustingly, are bound to have ripened more thoroughly, become more human human beings, than a man, who is all too light and has not been pulled down beneath the surface of life by the weight of a bodily fruit and who, in his arrogance and impatience, undervalues what he thinks he loves. This humanity which inhabits woman, brought to term in pain and humiliation, will, once she has shrugged off the conventions of mere femininity through the transformations of her outward status, come clearly to light, and men, who today do not yet feel it approaching, will be taken by surprise and struck down by it. One day (there are already reliable signs which speak for it and which begin to spread their light, especially in the northern countries), one day there will be girls and women whose name will no longer just signify the opposite of the male but something in their own right, something which does not make one think of any supplement or limit but only of life and existence: the female human being.

This - Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
Women quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#27. Only the middle distance and what may be called the remoter foreground are strictly human. When we look very near or very far, man either vanishes altogether or loses his primacy. The astronomer looks even further afield than the Sung painter and sees even less of human life. At the other end of the scale the physicist, the chemist, the physiologist pursue the close-up – the cellular close-up, the molecular, the atomic and subatomic. Of that which, at twenty feet, even at arm's length, looked and sounded like a human being no trace remains.
Something analogous happens to the myopic artist and the happy lover. In the nuptial embrace personality is melted down; the individual (it is the recurrent theme of Lawrence's poems and novels) ceases to be himself and becomes a part of the vast impersonal universe.
And so it is with the artist who chooses to use his eyes at the near point. In his work humanity loses its importance, even disappears completely. Instead of men and women playing their fantastic tricks before high heaven, we are asked to consider the lilies, to meditate on the unearthly beauty of 'mere things,' when isolated from their utilitarian context and rendered as they are, in and for themselves. Alternatively (or, at an earlier stage of artistic development, exclusively), the nonhuman world of the near-point is rendered in patterns. These patterns are abstracted for the most part from leaves and flowers – the rose, the lotus, the acanthus, palm, papyrus – an - Author: Aldous Huxley
Women quotes by Aldous Huxley
#28. The sexiest thing about a women is her health. When you feel good, everyone is attracted to you. But if you look sick, they'll steer a wild path around you. - Author: Carol Alt
Women quotes by Carol Alt
#29. I feel a strong affinity to Ke$ha and Katy Perry and a lot of these women who are really pushing the girl power femme fatale thing. It's fun, and it's unapologetic, and they tell women they can do whatever they want, and that's true, and that's a message that I want to carry, to tell girls they can do whatever they want. - Author: T. J. Miller
Women quotes by T. J. Miller
#30. The nations of the earth that most vigorously foul the planetary nest and those in possession of the most destructive arsenals ought to be governed only by young women with small kids. More than anyone else, such mothers must live in the future, and they also face each day the realities of raw human nature.. This gives them a special insight, - Author: Mary Doria Russell
Women quotes by Mary Doria Russell
#31. And women, I am afraid, are not always quite as fair as they should be. - Author: Bram Stoker
Women quotes by Bram Stoker
#32. ...Minnesota, Wisconsin, all around there... has the kind of women I liked when I was younger. Pale-skinned and blue-eyed, hair so fair it's almost white, wine-colored lips, and round, full breasts with the veins running through them like a good cheese. - Author: Neil Gaiman
Women quotes by Neil Gaiman
#33. I saw houses burned by the Mujahadeen, as well as disfigured bodies of prisoners they'd taken. But I saw other things too: villages destroyed by our shelling and bodies of women, killed by mistake. When you shoot at every rustling in the bushes, there's no time to think about who's there. But for an Afghan, it didn't matter if his wife had been killed intentionally or accidentally. He went into the mountains to see revenge. - Author: Vladislav Tamarov
Women quotes by Vladislav Tamarov
#34. I've seen your stormy seas and stormy women, And pity lovers rather more than seamen. - Author: Lord Byron
Women quotes by Lord Byron
#35. The women always get blamed. Have you noticed that? The wives are nags. The mistress is a bitch for betraying the sisterhood. And the men just fall through the cracks in between. We expect so little from our boys, don't we, Grace? - Author: Louise O'Neill
Women quotes by Louise O'Neill
#36. Our championship committee pledged to review entry conditions and to assess how women golfers might compete on equal terms with men for a place in the Open. - Author: Peter Dawson
Women quotes by Peter Dawson
#37. WOMEN lie about sex. It doesn't matter how many partners she says she's had before you. She's lying. - Author: Richard Madeley
Women quotes by Richard Madeley
#38. It is an unfortunate fact that in many parts of the world women are considered property. An awful lot of injustice is obviously due to that; not just women's status in the home, but all kinds of laws that are even more discriminating. - Author: Madeleine Albright
Women quotes by Madeleine Albright
#39. Every company wants to know how to find and keep highly talented women in the workplace. - Author: Marcus Buckingham
Women quotes by Marcus Buckingham
#40. Women are in the midst of an unfinished revolution. - Author: Gloria Feldt
Women quotes by Gloria Feldt
#41. (The feast-room in GUNNAR'S house. The entrance-door is in the back; smaller doors in the side-walls. In front, on the left, the greater high-seat; opposite it on the right, the lesser. In the middle of the floor, a wood fire is burning on a built-up hearth. In the background, on both sides of the door, are daises for the women of the household. From each of the high-seats, a long table, with benches, stretches backwards, parallel with the wall. It is dark outside; the fire lights the room.) - Author: Henrik Ibsen
Women quotes by Henrik Ibsen
#42. I wanted to help women and their families. - Author: Tory Burch
Women quotes by Tory Burch
#43. Nur once heard it said that a woman's sphere is actually less constrained than a man's. Because whilst he may travel outside in the physical world, her internal world is limitless, set only by the boundaries of her imagination. This life within the mind is a skill that men do not always take the time to learn . . . unless, perhaps, they are of a particularly spiritual bent. - Author: Lucy Foley
Women quotes by Lucy Foley
#44. Women's lives get more interesting the older they get. For some reason, when you hit 35, it turns into a grey area filmically. There's not much more until you start playing grannies. I'm not ready for that. I'm just naffed off that, between 35 and 50, there aren't better things about. - Author: Amanda Donohoe
Women quotes by Amanda Donohoe
#45. Women can handle the worst kind of pain. - Author: Gayle Forman
Women quotes by Gayle Forman
#46. They had stripped us of everything we were taught made us women, and then told us we were mad. - Author: Kiersten White
Women quotes by Kiersten White
#47. Most critics of gender division are women, and they're worried about girls and the roles presented for them by gendered entertainments. They are quite right to be. Telling girls that the cars and the guns are beyond their domain of expertise, and that they should content themselves with clothes and friendships, is limiting. - Author: Russell Smith
Women quotes by Russell Smith
#48. It's like what you might call Goldilocks' dilemma in the old fairy tale. Young men see women as "less than" or "better than," but never their equals. And studies indicate that equality is the best foundation for a healthy relationship. - Author: Michael Kimmel
Women quotes by Michael Kimmel
#49. I don't find any difference between Islam and Islamic fundamentalists. I believe religion is the root, and from the root fundamentalism grows as a poisonous stem. If we remove fundamentalism and keep religion, then one day or another fundamentalism will grow again. I need to say that because some liberals always defend Islam and blame fundamentalists for creating problems. But Islam itself oppresses women. Islam itself doesn't permit democracy and it violates human rights. - Author: Taslima Nasrin
Women quotes by Taslima Nasrin
#50. But there were some who went with her willingly, for there are other women who dream of lying with wolves. - Author: John Connolly
Women quotes by John Connolly
#51. I'm convinced that we Black women possess a special indestructible strength that allows us to not only get down, but to get up, to get through, and to get over. - Author: Janet Jackson
Women quotes by Janet Jackson
#52. Sometimes women's attraction to true crime is dismissed as trashy and voyeuristic (because women are vapid!). Sometimes it is unquestioningly celebrated as feminist (because if women like something, then it must be feminist!). And some argue that women read about serial killers to avoid becoming victims. This is the most flattering theory - and also, it seemed to me, the most incomplete. By presuming that women's dark thoughts were merely pragmatic, those thoughts are drained of their menace. True crime wasn't something we women at CrimeCon were consuming begrudgingly, for our own good. We found pleasure in these bleak accounts of kidnappings and assaults and torture chambers, and you could tell by how often we fell back on the language of appetite, of bingeing, of obsession. A different, more alarming hypothesis was the one I tended to prefer: perhaps we liked creepy stories because something creepy was in us. - Author: Rachel Monroe
Women quotes by Rachel Monroe
#53. I can be a stupid girl inside of a crazy woman at times over you. If I weren't, you should be worried! We all do stupid shit. I might as well be a fool for someone worth it. - Author: Crystal Woods
Women quotes by Crystal Woods
#54. To girls and women everywhere, I issue a simple invitation.
My sisters, my daughters, my friends; find your voice - Author: Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
Women quotes by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
#55. Light, women would believe anything about a man so long as it was bad. And the worse it was, the more they had to talk about it. - Author: Robert Jordan
Women quotes by Robert Jordan
#56. Since I retired, I very much enjoy watching Serena Williams play. While I was playing, she was one of the toughest players I ever faced. Her ground strokes are so solid, her serve is one of the most powerful in women's tennis, and mentally she is just so strong. - Author: Monica Seles
Women quotes by Monica Seles
#57. Yes. Laugh. But there's sense in the old rules. They kept people out of trouble.' He was annoyed because I laughed, and said that a woman in my position needed extra dignity of behaviour. 'What position?' - I was suddenly very angry, because of the trapped feeling women get at such moments. - Author: Doris Lessing
Women quotes by Doris Lessing
#58. What bothers me most about my teeth is that they don't travel loin south, don't sprout from the Mother Mouth. Vagina dentata, come closah, say high. - Author: Virginia Petrucci
Women quotes by Virginia Petrucci
#59. The light ones may be killers, the dark ones mild; not the wrappers but the fillers, make cigars or women wild. - Author: Keith Preston

Women quotes by Margaret Fuller
#61. The way to achieve your own success is to be willing to help somebody else get it first. - Author: Iyanla Vanzant
Women quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
#62. When will women begin to have the first glimmer that above all other loyalties is the loyalty toTruth, i.e., to yourself, that husband, children, friends and countryare as nothing to that. - Author: Alice James
Women quotes by Alice James
#63. And while the black women are the most hidden of the mathematicians who worked at the NACA, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, and later at NASA, they were not sitting alone in the shadows: the white women who made up the majority of Langley's computing workforce over the years have hardly been recognized for their contributions to the agency's long-term success. Virginia Biggins worked the Langley beat for the Daily Press newspaper, covering the space program starting in 1958. "Everyone said, 'This is a scientist, this is an engineer,' and it was always a man," she said in a 1990 panel on Langley's human computers. She never got to meet any of the women. "I just assumed they were all secretaries," she said. Five - Author: Margot Lee Shetterly
Women quotes by Margot Lee Shetterly
#64. It's hard making a woman your wife when you've been humpin married women for most of your life - Author: Big Daddy Kane
Women quotes by Big Daddy Kane
#65. There certainly are some women who treat their male partners badly, berating them, calling them names, attempting to control them. The negative impact on these men's lives can be considerable. But do we see men whose self-esteem is gradually destroyed through this process? Do we see men whose progress in school or in their careers grinds to a halt because of the constant criticism and undermining? Where are the men whose partners are forcing them to have unwanted sex? Where are the men who are fleeing to shelters in fear for their lives? How about the ones who try to get to a phone to call for help, but the women block their way or cut the line? The reason we don't generally see these men is simple: They're rare.
I don't question how embarrassing it would be for a man to come forward and admit that a woman is abusing him. But don't underestimate how humiliated a woman feels when she reveals abuse; women crave dignity just as much as men do. If shame stopped people from coming forward, no one would tell. - Author: Lundy Bancroft
Women quotes by Lundy Bancroft
#66. Every woman wants to be first to someone sometime in her life and that desire is the explanation for many strange things women do. - Author: Eleanor Roosevelt
Women quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#67. Women and men are lost in the same labyrinth .. on different floors. - Author: Bogdan Vaida
Women quotes by Bogdan Vaida

Women quotes by Debbie Wasserman Schultz
#69. I'm more androgynous, because men are supposed to be more spatial, women more literal - I'm a tomboy. - Author: Portia Doubleday
Women quotes by Portia Doubleday
#70. He caught the look on her face, a mixture of distaste and confusion which eventually resolved into something more cryptic. Women usually needed to be acquainted with him a little longer before he saw that expression on their faces. - Author: Kate Atkinson
Women quotes by Kate Atkinson
#71. The bar is in full swing, and floating rounds of cocktails permeate the garden outside, until the air is alivewith chatter and laughter, and casual innuendo and introductions forgotten on the spot, and enthusiastic meetings between women who never knew each other's names. - Author: F Scott Fitzgerald
Women quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#72. Structure your thought pattern to what you want to achieve and who you want to become. - Author: Jaachynma N.E. Agu
Women quotes by Jaachynma N.E. Agu
#73. Traditionally women have been more reticent to acknowledge their ambition and to say it with pride. So I like having people who work for us who are ambitious, engaged, respectful. Mis-hiring is a huge mistake. It's a tremendous opportunity cost throwing the position to the wrong person. - Author: Ivanka Trump
Women quotes by Ivanka Trump

Women quotes by Sheherazade Goldsmith
#76. While the official church was moribund, the house churches kept alight the flame of Christian witness. The church survived as a lay movement, often led by poorly educated Bible women who memorized Scripture and passed on the faith to family members and (if they dared) to neighbors and friends. - Author: Kim-Kwong Chan
Women quotes by Kim-Kwong Chan
#77. Women respond to comfort and a sense of humor. I was always able to make them laugh, so that helps a lot. - Author: Peter Dinklage
Women quotes by Peter Dinklage
#78. The test of whether or not you can hold a job should not be in the arrangement of your chromosomes - Author: Bella Abzug

Women quotes by Gloria Steinem
#81. Those which defend liberty, equality and fraternity, seem to us superior to those which accept tyranny, the subservience of women, social and ethnic hatred. - Author: Claude Gueant
Women quotes by Claude Gueant
#82. It is a formidable list of jobs: the whole of the spinning industry, the whole of the dyeing industry, the whole of the weaving industry. The whole catering industry and - which would not please Lady Astor, perhaps - the whole of the nation's brewing and distilling. All the preserving, pickling and bottling industry, all the bacon-curing. And (since in those days a man was often absent from home for months together on war or business) a very large share in the management of landed estates. Here are the women's jobs - and what has become of them? They are all being handled by men. It is all very well to say that woman's place is the home - but modern civilisation has taken all these pleasant and profitable activities out of the home, where the women looked after them, and handed them over to big industry, to be directed and organised by men at the head of large factories. Even the dairy-maid in her simple bonnet has gone, to be replaced by a male mechanic in charge of a mechanical milking plant. - Author: Dorothy L. Sayers
Women quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#83. She had a very inconvenient heart. It always insisted on feeling things ever so deeply. - Author: John Mark Green
Women quotes by John Mark Green
#84. Men are going to go out on the road and they're going to find other women. So if you really want to save yourself a whole lot of heartache, do not fall in love with somebody in a band. Just don't. - Author: Stevie Nicks
Women quotes by Stevie Nicks
#85. Like representative government, soccer has been imported from England and democratized in the United States. It has become the great social and athletic equalizer for suburban America. From kindergarten, girls are placed on equal footing with boys. In the fall, weekend soccer games are a prevalent in suburbia as yard sales. Girls have their own leagues, or they play with boys, and they suffer from no tradition that says that women will grow up professionally to be less successful than men.

'In the United States, not only are girls on equal footing, but the perception now is that American women can be better than American men,' said Donna Shalala, the Secretary of Health and Human Services. 'That's a turning point, a huge breakthrough in perception. - Author: Jere Longman
Women quotes by Jere Longman
#86. Women need to attack those negative voices they have in their head. - Author: Jada Pinkett Smith
Women quotes by Jada Pinkett Smith
#87. The issues facing working women and their families are closest to my heart. I decided to focus intently on the challenges military wives face because they juggle the same pressures as their nonmilitary peers, all while coping as single parents while their loved ones are overseas. I wanted to help make their voices heard. - Author: Michelle Obama
Women quotes by Michelle Obama
#88. Social science affirms that a woman's place in society marks the level of civilization. - Author: Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Women quotes by Elizabeth Cady Stanton
#89. What happened was private. I was in it with Rose. She had hurt me grievously and now I was forever attached. I was in it now with all the women in the world. I walked home glad. I will die, I thought with a bounce in my step. I'm whole. Not whole like anyone else, but whole like me. Painful, but simple. It was very simple now. - Author: Eileen Myles
Women quotes by Eileen Myles
#90. Whatever you choose, however many roads you travel, I hope that you choose not to be a lady. I hope you will find some way to break the rules and make a little trouble out there. And I also hope that you will choose to make some of that trouble on behalf of women.
[Commencement Address, Wellesley College, 1996] - Author: Nora Ephron
Women quotes by Nora Ephron
#91. There's nothing more unattractive than a man who blames predestination for his own failures and a woman who blames men for her own vulnerability ...
Blame thyself - Author: Sanhita Baruah
Women quotes by Sanhita Baruah
#92. Carmyn drops her glass from her lips first and bites into the slice of lime she's holding in her other hand. Her lips wrap around the flesh of the fruit, and my dick flexes in earnest. I've watched women suck on me and not look nearly that seductive. - Author: Angeline Kace
Women quotes by Angeline Kace
#93. Marriage. That's what he called it, though men like Paul do not marry women. They own them. They control them. They are voracious gluttons who devour every part of a woman, then clean their teeth with the bones. - Author: Karin Slaughter
Women quotes by Karin Slaughter
#94. Jesse Jackson was involved in a three-car crash this weekend. I understand that no one was hurt, but I understand that two of the women in the other cars are now pregnant. - Author: Jay Leno
Women quotes by Jay Leno
#95. For some women, a man is their whole meal. For me, life is a full meal and a man is just the hot sauce. If a man wants to be my whole meal, I say, 'That's nice, baby, but right now, I'm already full. - Author: Lisa Nicole Carson
Women quotes by Lisa Nicole Carson
#96. I found out pretty quickly that there is a lot of money to be made if you can become the kind of woman who doesn't look like the kind of woman she is. - Author: Sara Sheridan
Women quotes by Sara Sheridan
#97. Awh hell," muttered Drake, "do you do that to all the human women?"
"No, usually they've started taking their clothes off by now. She's beginning to hurt my feelings." (Logan)
"We need to get you a paper bag or a scar or something. (Drake)
"Yeah," he said in a dry tone. "I'll get right to work on that."
(Helen spellbound-meeting Logan the Vampire for the first time) - Author: Shannon K. Butcher
Women quotes by Shannon K. Butcher
#98. My dear Usbek, when women feel, as they lose their attractiveness, that their end is coming in advance, they would like to go backwards to youth again. How could they possibly not attempt to deceive other people? - they make every effort to deceive themselves, and to escape from the most distressing thought we can have. - Author: Montesquieu
Women quotes by Montesquieu
#99. It is not the dignitaries who are the real cause of hope, however. What is an enormously refreshing and hopeful sign is to see the young people who make up the membership of the Federalist Society. Earnest, intelligent, and unpretentious, these are the young men and women of whom any nation and any age could be proud. - Author: Thomas Sowell
Women quotes by Thomas Sowell
#100. Beautiful women are always drawn to men they think will keep them beautiful. - Author: Mark Z. Danielewski
Women quotes by Mark Z. Danielewski

Women quotes by Roxane Gay
#102. In my age group I don't know a single woman who is as successful as I am. I am the total exception. You can be very proud of it. But you are also very isolated. - Author: Christiane Nusslein-Volhard
Women quotes by Christiane Nusslein-Volhard
#103. It is as heroic as he makes it sound. "Why have I never heard anything about all this - and not just from you? Sophie never said a word. Hell, I didn't even know that people escaped over the mountains or that there was a concentration camp just for women who resisted the Nazis." "Men tell stories," I say. It is the truest, simplest answer to his question. "Women get on with it. For us it was a shadow war. There were no parades for us when it was over, no medals or mentions in history books. We did what we had to during the war, and when it was over, we picked up the pieces and started our lives over. Your sister was as desperate to forget it as I was. Maybe that was another mistake I made - letting her forget. Maybe we should have talked about it. - Author: Kristin Hannah
Women quotes by Kristin Hannah
#104. I dress for a certain type of girl that I like. Women dress for us, they dress to attract us, so we should at least show that gratitude to them, you know what I'm saying? - Author: Danny Brown
Women quotes by Danny Brown
#105. This is a faithless old world. Men and women are hardheaded, pleasure-mad, money crazy. They write up their successes and say, "The power and might of my hand have done these things." God has been ruled out; consequently, the thrill and romance of true living are gone for most people. - Author: Lee Roberson
Women quotes by Lee Roberson
#106. Women never have young minds. They are born three thousand years old. - Author: Shelagh Delaney
Women quotes by Shelagh Delaney
#107. Fulfilment of masculinity is often sold on the strength of peak experiences: winning battles, pulling women, pure adrenaline, moments of ecstasy. But life ain't like that. We rarely, if ever, take our car (masculinity) on to a racetrack, so maybe we need a version that works doing the everyday things. We need a masculinity that's easy to park, with a big boot, child seats and low fuel consumption. Men need to learn to equip themselves for peace. - Author: Grayson Perry
Women quotes by Grayson Perry
#108. I've twice run against women opponents, and it's a very different kind of approach. For those of us who have some chivalry left, there's a level of respect ... You treat some things as a special treasure; you treat other things as common. - Author: Mike Huckabee
Women quotes by Mike Huckabee
#109. I always just loved women, but more important than loving women, more important than sexual stuff, is I always believed in romance. - Author: Andrew Dice Clay
Women quotes by Andrew Dice Clay
#110. Women know the damnation of charity because the habit of civilization has always been to throw them cheap alms rather than give them good wages. - Author: Rebecca West
Women quotes by Rebecca West
#111. She said it was different, because the balance of power was equal between women so sex was an even-steven transaction. I said "even-steven" was a sexist phrase, if she was going to be like that, and anyway that argument was outdated. She said I had trivialized the issue and if I thought it was outdated, I was living with my head in the sand.
(...)
I said there was more than one way of living with your head in the sand and that if Moira thought she could create Utopia by shutting herself up in a women-only enclave she was sadly mistaken. Men were not just going to go away, I said. You couldn't just ignore them . - Author: Margaret Atwood
Women quotes by Margaret Atwood
#112. In the absence of men all women are chaste. - Author: Khushwant Singh
Women quotes by Khushwant Singh
#113. He told me he was used to getting what he wanted. - Author: Celia Conrad
Women quotes by Celia Conrad
#114. If it hadn't been for this chance hospital encounter, accidental in all senses, Victor might never have courted a girl. He already felt well on his way to middle age, and his social life was still limited to the chess club. Victor didn't really feel the need for another person in his life, in fact he found the concept of "sharing" a life bizarre. He had mathematics, which filled up his time almost completely, so he wasn't entirely sure what he wanted with a wife. Women seemed to him to be in possession of all kinds of undesirable properties, chiefly madness, but also a multiplicity of physical drawbacks - blood, sex, children - which were unsettling and other. - Author: Kate Atkinson
Women quotes by Kate Atkinson
#115. Women know intuitively when they are being devalued. (121) - Author: Robyn Silverman
Women quotes by Robyn Silverman
#116. It's easy for women to say they don't understand and ask a man for help. As the saying goes, boys play with toys, and girls play with boys. - Author: Tom Stewart
Women quotes by Tom Stewart
#117. Instead of helping women in Roe v. Wade, I brought destruction to me & millions of women. - Author: Norma McCorvey
Women quotes by Norma McCorvey
#118. If women only knew the extent of their power! - Author: Alphonse Karr
Women quotes by Alphonse Karr
#119. It isn't about the looks; gorgeous women get dumped every day. It isn't about intelligence. Women of all types, from brilliant women to women with the IQ equivalent of plant life, pull it off every day. It's about mystery and learning how to create intrigue. - Author: Sherry Argov
Women quotes by Sherry Argov

Women quotes by Amanda Lindhout
#123. Long historical books get written by women, but not contemporary experiments, which still seems to be a very male-dominated field. - Author: Eleanor Catton
Women quotes by Eleanor Catton
#124. When you are 18, 19, 20, you're used to being photographed all the time, in a certain way. So, the narcissism becomes almost out of control. And the way that young women are photographed, they become addicted to this feedback of the image. - Author: Marianne Faithfull
Women quotes by Marianne Faithfull
#125. I am thankful for all the hard times I've been through and all the tears I've cried because that has put me as closer to God and made me the strong woman I am today! - Author: Angela Merkel
Women quotes by Angela Merkel
#126. She was mined for the children
in her, one daughter, then another,
a short seam, quick to clay,
and not a single son to save them. - Author: Robert Wrigley
Women quotes by Robert Wrigley
#127. While it would be as wrong of me to attribute these traits to women at the exclusion of men as it would be for a man to do the reverse, I think women can often be very strong team players and good communicators and collaborators. - Author: Diane Nelson
Women quotes by Diane Nelson
#128. Unfortunately, most of today's women resemble bowerbirds that force
suitors to build elaborate nests of twigs, leaves, and discarded garbage before choosing a mate. Any male who doesn't meet her standards doesn't get to mate that year; one assumes he just stays in his bower, reads bower manuals, and watches bowerbird porn. - Author: Stephen Colbert
Women quotes by Stephen Colbert
#129. Although he was a young man, younger by far than any of the others, Clare could tell from the gate's whine as it swung out before him that he knew from experience how certain things worked – people, women, complicated gates. He knew how to touch something so that it clicked open in his hands. - Author: Catriona Ross
Women quotes by Catriona Ross
#130. Woman's Anthem
Women are fierce. They are powerful. No matter what language they speak, how they dress, or the work they choose to do. What matters is they have a choice, and the freedom to carve out a life for themselves.
As long as we know women who are strong and resilient, we must respect them, carry them forward, lift them up.
For they are the product of all our other selves, the women we were, the ones we strive to be, the collective struggle of our mothers, our sisters, our daughters.
Our salvation will only come if we stand together - Author: Lang Leav
Women quotes by Lang Leav
#131. I'm an Air Force officer first, a pilot second and then Nicole. The female part is last ... My job is to be the best right wingman that I can be. - Author: Nicole Malachowski
Women quotes by Nicole Malachowski
#132. As male characters level up and become more powerful, their bodies become better protected and covered. In contrast, as female characters level up and become more powerful, their bodies are uncovered and made more vulnerable. Thus, as women gain power, they are disempowered in another way. - Author: Nick Yee
Women quotes by Nick Yee
#133. The mass depiction of the modern woman as a "beauty" is a contradiction: Where modern women are growing, moving, and expressing their individuality, as the myth has it, "beauty" is by definition inert, timeless, and generic. That this hallucination is necessary and deliberate is evident in the way "beauty" so directly contradicts women's real situation. - Author: Naomi Wolf
Women quotes by Naomi Wolf
#134. Whenever women struggle with breast cancer and face better care than ever, that's feminism. - Author: Bell Hooks
Women quotes by Bell Hooks
#135. Later, while my mother reclines, angry and exhausted, I recede into primal speculation. What kind of being is this? Is big John Cairncross our envoy to the future, the form of a man to end wars, rapine and enslavement and stand equal and caring with the women of the world? Or will he be trampled into oblivion by brutes? We shall find out. - Author: Ian McEwan
Women quotes by Ian McEwan
#136. There are some women out there who are just going to look better with a mustache: that's statistics. - Author: Caitlin Moran

#138. Women only nag when they feel unappreciated. - Author: Louis De Bernieres
Women quotes by Louis De Bernieres
#139. no woman tastes like honey- but every man should tell the woman he is with that she does. every woman I have ever known intimately has been inhibited and self conscious about the way their pussy might taste to a man. All I know is that women relax and let themselves go sexually once a man reassures her that he loves the way she tastes. - Author: Jason Luke
Women quotes by Jason Luke
#140. It could have been anyone," I said.
"All the women who look at you when we go out.
Ms. Bisette at school. God, even Hiyam. Why me?"
He stared at the coffee table,
the reflection of snow like confectioner's sugar sifting down.
"It couldn't have been anyone," he said softly.
"For a long time before I met you, I felt my life was this kind of test.
I was in deep, cold water, swimming for shore,
and my arms were getting tired,my skin numb.
On the shore was everything I thought I wanted: a better job, a house, a family."
He swallowed, his throat cording with tension.
"But I could barely keep my head above water.
Eventually I stopped seeing the shore. Only cold dark blue, in all directions.
I know it's cliché, but when I met you, my eyes opened.
I looked around, and realized I could stand up whenever I wanted.
There was firm ground under my feet.
That shore in the distance was an illusion.
I was already somewhere beautiful. - Author: Leah Raeder
Women quotes by Leah Raeder
#141. Women's studies needed a syllabus and so invented a canon overnight. It puffed up clunky, mundane contemporary women authors into Oz-like, skywriting dirigibles. Our best women students are being force-fed an appalling diet of cant, drivel and malarkey. - Author: Camille Paglia
Women quotes by Camille Paglia
#142. Women are the field that produces our nation. And if you can't protect your women, you can't protect your nation. - Author: Muhammad Ali
Women quotes by Muhammad Ali
#143. Women who just don't like each other because the other one is a woman and "women don't like each other" myth - that's not interesting to me at all. How do you compete in the market place, how you stay relevant after many years of being in the public eye - all of that. To me, that's interesting and that's real. - Author: Callie Khouri
Women quotes by Callie Khouri
#144. A great number of the women are victims to falling of the womb and weakness in the spine; but these are necessary results of their laborious existence, and do not belong either to climate or constitution. - Author: Fanny Kemble
Women quotes by Fanny Kemble
#145. Hortensia set the tray down and brought a shawl and wrapped it protectively around Mama's shoulders. Esperanza couldn't remember a time when Hortensia had not taken care of them. She was a Zapotec Indian from Oaxaca, with a short, solid figure and blue-black hair in a braid down her back. Esperanza watched the two women look out into the dark and couldn't help but think that Hortensia was almost the opposite of Mama. - Author: Pam Munoz Ryan
Women quotes by Pam Munoz Ryan
#146. Besides the physical strains I realized men can be pigs to women even when it's a man dressed as one. - Author: Michael Rosenbaum
Women quotes by Michael Rosenbaum
#147. Let's face it: Today silly women mired in the sophistries and seductions of the world, and haughty women obsessed with themselves, abound. Regrettably, many women succumb to the temptation to judge, gossip, and undermine one another. - Author: Sheri Dew
Women quotes by Sheri Dew
#148. There was a magnetism to the Mortimer women, and they knew it, and they used it. It was their right, this witchery; they'd given up their souls for it. - Author: Claire Legrand
Women quotes by Claire Legrand
#149. I never had a particularly strong craving to procreate, except for earlier fantasies of wanting to be Marmee in Little Women. - Author: Anne Lamott
Women quotes by Anne Lamott
#150. Office. "Freaking glorious." I hefted my bag higher on my shoulder and I headed out. Tank was standing guard on the sidewalk, in front of my car. "I have a couple FTAs," I said to Tank. "One's in the Burg and one's in Hamilton Township. I have to stop at my apartment first to get some clean clothes and stuff." "It might be easier if we took one car for the busts," Tank said. I agreed. "Do you want to drive or ride shotgun?" Tank's eyebrows raised a fraction of an inch. Shocked that I would even consider driving. Tank only rode shotgun to Ranger. "It's the twenty-first century," I told Tank. "Women drive." "Only in my bed," Tank said. "Never in my car." I didn't have a reply to that, but I thought it sounded like an okay philosophy. So I beeped the Escape locked, got into Tank's SUV, and we chugged off for my place. - Author: Janet Evanovich
Women quotes by Janet Evanovich
#151. While women weep, as they do now,
I'll fight
While little children go hungry, as they do now,
I'll fight
While men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do now,
I'll fight
While there is a drunkard left,
While there is a poor lost girl upon the streets,
While there remains one dark soul without the light of God,
I'll fight-I'll fight to the very end! - Author: William Booth
Women quotes by William Booth
#152. Patriarchy is women structuring lifelong decisions around men they haven't met. - Author: Maggie Young

#153. Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less. - Author: Susan B. Anthony
Women quotes by Susan B. Anthony
#154. She preferred to nurture healthy relationships with a few women, like Shelby, a genuinely loyal friend, and weed out weak and petty imposters who passed through her life. - Author: Sarah Jo Smith
Women quotes by Sarah Jo Smith
#155. Today, Islam effectively resists secularization primarily because of its use of shame. Within the community, each person's sexuality is tied to his or her family and to the community. To violate the sexual rules of Allah violates both the family and the community. This powerful distortion allows Islam to remain isolated from secular sexual influences. The terror of social sanction or violence keeps young people from following their heart. It prevents healthy sexual exploration and development in men and women. - Author: Darrel Ray
Women quotes by Darrel Ray
#156. Both porn and religion distort a person's perspectives on women. - Author: Jesse Dangerously
Women quotes by Jesse Dangerously
#157. Sadly, our culture raises man to be strong and silent. Straight or gay, the pressure is on from the time we're very young to become our culture's John Wayne-style of man.
* The more pain I can take, the more of a man I am.
* Showing feelings is for women.
* The more I can drink, the manlier I am.
* Intimacy is sex; sex is intimacy.
* Only women depend on others.
* A man takes care of himself without help from others.
* No one can hurt you if you're strong.
* I am what I earn.
* It is best to keep your problems to yourself.
* Winning is all that really matters.
Where did this stuff come from? It's everywhere in our society from the movies heroes we love to the politicians we vote for. Our culture demands that man fit in a tightly defined role. - Author: Alan Downs
Women quotes by Alan Downs
#158. There is, then, a world immune from change. But I am not composed enough, standing on tiptoe on the verge of fire, still scorched by the hot breath, afraid of the door opening and the leap of the tiger, to make even one sentence. What I say is perpetually contradicted. Each time the door opens I am interrupted. I am not yet twenty-one. I am to be broken. I am to be derided all my life. I am to be cast up and down among these men and women, with their twitching faces, with their lying tongues, like a cork on a rough sea. Like a ribbon of weed I am flung far every time the door opens. I am the foam that sweeps and fills the uttermost rims of the rocks with whiteness; I am also a girl, here in this room. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Women quotes by Virginia Woolf
#159. Yeah, we appreciate our women followng ... and I love women. I mean, I just really love women. I love men, too, but you know it's like sometimes you look up from what you're doing and you go, 'I love women.' There's just something about them and so, just celebrate it. - Author: Amy Ray
Women quotes by Amy Ray
#160. I am not here for women only, but also for women. - Author: Angela Merkel
Women quotes by Angela Merkel
#161. Time seemed to drag with dreamlike slowness, like a knife through cold honey, and the room took on a surreal golden sheen as if I was looking through that same jar of honey. Maybe at that moment, the sun shone just right though the grimy windows, but the woman, the shelves, the jars, everything in the room appeared in tones of gold and sepia, except for the painting behind the counter. From behind the shopkeeper's head, a fluorescent Mary and Jesus glared at me, their cartoon-like faces reproaching me for being there. - Author: Sara Stark
Women quotes by Sara Stark
#162. If we had no hurt and no sin to speak of, we'd be angels, and amgels can't love the way men and women do. - Author: Alice Hoffman
Women quotes by Alice Hoffman
#163. As I hope this list of "integration concerns" illustrates, not every identity threat comes from prejudiced people. Think about O'Connor on the Supreme Court before Ginsburg. Many of the contingencies she dealt with had little to do with prejudice among her fellow justices or her staff. Some of them may have been prejudiced, but her problems went beyond that: a Court that was dominated by male sensibilities and referents and that was less sensitive, in its functioning, to the perspectives of women; no critical mass of women with which to give her a sense of belonging on the Court; negative stereotypes about women in the larger society and in the legal world that were available for use in judging her work; the fact that her being the only woman on the Court made her the sole representative of her sex in each Court decision; and so on. O'Connor would have had to deal with these things even if there hadn't been an iota of sexism in any of the people she worked with. - Author: Claude M. Steele
Women quotes by Claude M. Steele
#164. We still live in a world in which a significant fraction of people, including women, believe that a woman belongs and wants to belong exclusively in the home; that a woman should not aspire to achieve more than her male counterparts and, particularly, not more than her husband. - Author: Rosalyn Sussman Yalow
Women quotes by Rosalyn Sussman Yalow
#165. The women are, of course, the biggest single group of oppressed people in the world and, if we are to believe the Book of Genesis, the very oldest. - Author: Chinua Achebe
Women quotes by Chinua Achebe
#166. When the bombers are women - and children, which I predict we'll see more of - the terrorists get more bang for their buck, because there's more media attention. - Author: Mia Bloom
Women quotes by Mia Bloom
#167. Women who love themselves are threatening; but men who love real women, more so. - Author: Naomi Wolf
Women quotes by Naomi Wolf
#168. I am thirsty, and very susceptible to flattery ... you could talk me into anything ... "
"So much for fighting the good fight," I observed dryly. "He'll have a harem within a week."
Bones watched Juan disappear down the hall, nuzzling the blonde's neck in a manner that didn't speak only of hunger. "He's a fine bloke. He'll learn."
"Learn what?" At least he can't get or pass diseases anymore, I thought. That's one advantage turning Juan into a vampire did for womankind.
Bones put an arm around me as we headed toward the exit of the flesh feast. "He'll learn that many women can satisfy for a short period of time, but when he falls in love, only one will sustain him forever."
I cast him a sideways glance "Are you trying to seduce me?"
His lips curled with promise. "Absolutely. - Author: Jeaniene Frost
Women quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#169. Sex, after all, is about being separate and joined at the same time. The fact that men tend to emphasize the former and women the latter is not an irreducible fact of gender, but the result of asymmetries in childrearing and socialization. But more than that, such tensions reflect the fact that in our society as a whole we don't know how to be involved with one another without feeling burdened or selfishly indulgent without feeling guilty. If we can solve this problem on a societal level, it will go a long way to solving it in the bedroom. - Author: Michael J. Bader
Women quotes by Michael J. Bader
#170. As men write letters they become more caring, understanding, and respectful; as women write letters they become more trusting, accepting, and appreciative. - Author: Anonymous

#172. I'd love to direct commercials on Caribbean beacheswith luscious women rubbing on suntan lotion, but all I get arethese documentary-type things. - Author: Michael Apted
Women quotes by Michael Apted
#173. Later on after the war was over the women were to find this constantly; the men who had actually been in the thick of battle never opened their mouths about it, refused to join the ex-soldiers' clubs and leagues, wanted nothing to do with institutions perpetuating the memory of war. - Author: Colleen McCullough
Women quotes by Colleen McCullough
#174. People constantly requesting government intervention are casting their problems at society. And, you know, there's no such thing as society. There are individual men and women and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look after themselves first. It is our duty to look after ourselves and then, also, to look after our neighbours. - Author: Margaret Thatcher
Women quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#175. I was reared in an atmosphere where a great deal of attention was paid to women's hairdressing. - Author: Erich Von Stroheim

#176. When you're the ones in the life raft and you have four or five women in the life raft who put it together, by the end of it your nerves are blown. The people you're going to attack are the people who are helping you, who you are holding it together with. - Author: Junot Diaz

Women quotes by Thrity Umrigar
#179. It's instinct," he said then. "For centuries, it's been our job to protect our home, our women, and our children. We're emotional cowards. We don't talk about our feelings, we're not comfortable putting our soul into words. So we give of ourselves the only way we know how. We protect. We smother those we love in protection, fight for ways to keep them always safe, even from what we deem as a threat from themselves. It's in our genes, Kira. Right or wrong. Emotions are harder for a man to voice, strength is much easier for us to show. It's not an insult, it's the way men show their emotions for those they love. You can't change it."
"I can protect myself. - Author: Lora Leigh
Women quotes by Lora Leigh

Women quotes by Joshua Jackson
#181. Afghanistan doesn't have the oil of the Khazars, he said, and we're not ready to prostitute our women like the Thais. Unlike the Westerner's, ours is not a spiritual poverty but a material one. When our needs in that area are met, we will not have the dilemma or crisis of Western man. - Author: Zia Haider Rahman

#182. Women always put men first. That's how everything got so screwed up. - Author: Janet Fitch

Women quotes by Jessica Raine
#184. Girls do what their mothers tell them. Ladies do what society tells them. Women make up their own minds. - Author: Karen Kijewski
Women quotes by Karen Kijewski
#185. Women should be respected as well! Generally speaking, men are held in great esteem in all parts of the world, so why shouldn't women have their share? Soldiers and war heroes are honored and commemorated, explorers are granted immortal fame, martyrs are revered, but how many people look upon women too as soldiers? ... Women, who struggle and suffer pain to ensure the continuation of the human race, make much tougher and more courageous soldiers than all those big-mouthed freedom-fighting heroes put together! - Author: Anne Frank
Women quotes by Anne Frank
#186. Animal rights activists gives disillusioned feminists an excuse to go back to being women protecting wee creatures without compromising their radical credentials - Author: Florence King
Women quotes by Florence King
#187. Unfortunately, every era needs to demonize feminist. The Feminazi was the 1990s version. The term was coined by radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh to describe women who support abortion rights. It was taken up by ultra-right-wing conservatives everywhere and came to refer feminists in general. (…) A Feminazi is a strident, controlling bitch who –Oh, horrible crime!– insists on equal right for women. She doesn't agree with the right-wing construct that the man is the ruler of the home. Her goal in life is to turn men into whimpering slaves who take care of the kids and share the housecleaning, something men must resist at all costs or American society will crumple even more. The Guerrilla Girls are still waiting for the day when everyone will think of the Feminist as a positive stereotype. Don't let us wait too long. - Author: Guerrilla Girls
Women quotes by Guerrilla Girls
#188. Women don't need money. I mean what for? They don't drink, they don't play dice, and they're bloody women themselves. - Author: Andrzej Sapkowski
Women quotes by Andrzej Sapkowski
#189. Many of the seminal social issues of our time - poverty, lack of education, human trafficking, war and torture, domestic abuse - can track their way to our theology of, or beliefs about, women, which has its roots in what we believe about the nature, purposes, and character of God. - Author: Sarah Bessey
Women quotes by Sarah Bessey
#190. The point is, don't lie about who you are, Sloan. Own it in all its sordid, live, loud, and proud way. It might not be what everyone labels correct, especially the women in your life, but at least it's honest. - Author: Dakota Cassidy
Women quotes by Dakota Cassidy
#191. Now here's a shocker for the men. Maybe. Did you guys know that most women express love through words and non-sexual affection? Caressing, kissing and cuddling?" He nodded smiling. "And women, did you know what non-sexual caressing, kissing, and cuddling makes a man want?" They were all quiet now. They were connecting it. "Sex. That's right. Vicious cycle isn't it? - Author: Lucian Bane
Women quotes by Lucian Bane
#192. What they [the 9/11 attackers] abominate about 'the west', to put it in a phrase, is not what western liberals don't like and can't defend about their own system, but what they do like about it and must defend: its emancipated women, its scientific inquiry, its separation of religion from the state. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Women quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#193. Women have more energy, for a greater number of years, than men. Men, as they age, become either more wise or more stupid. - Author: Sandro Veronesi
Women quotes by Sandro Veronesi
#194. In the Old Way, women might decorate themselves with ornaments bought with coin, but a warrior wore only the jewelry he took off the corpses of enemies slain by his own hand. Paying the iron price, it was called. - Author: George R R Martin
Women quotes by George R R Martin
#195. Voltaire rejects all systems, and suspects that "every chief of a sect in philosophy has been a little of a quack."

"The further I go, the more I am confirmed in the idea that systems of metaphysics are for philosophers what novels are for women."

"It is only charlatans who are certain. We know nothing of first principles. It is truly extravagant to define God, angels, and minds, and to know precisely why God formed the world, when we do not know why we move our arms at will."

"Doubt is not a very agreeable state, but certainty is a ridiculous one. - Author: Will Durant
Women quotes by Will Durant
