Engrave this Quote Just think of all those women on the Titanic who said, No, thank you, to dessert that night. And for what!
Another version: Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart.

Engrave this Quote Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.

Jane Eyre, ch. 12, 1847
Engrave this Quote Good women always think it is their fault when someone else is being offensive. Bad women never take the blame for anything.

Hotel du Lac, ch. 7, 1984
Engrave this Quote A complete woman is probably not a very admirable creature. She is manipulative, uses other people to get her own way, and works within whatever system she is in.

Engrave this Quote It will be a pity if women in the more conventional mould are to be phased out, for there will never be anyone to go home to.

Engrave this Quote 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!

Engrave this Quote 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

Engrave this Quote Feminism is an entire world view or gestalt, not just a laundry list of women's issues.

Engrave this Quote The freedom that women were supposed to have found in the Sixties largely boiled down to easy contraception and abortion; things to make life easier for men, in fact.

-Lord (George Gordon) Byron
Engrave this Quote There is no solid satisfaction in any career for a woman like myself. There is no home, no true freedom, no hope, no joy, no expectation for tomorrow, no contentment. I would rather cook a meal for a man and bring him his slippers and feel myself in the protection of his arms than have all the citations and awards and honors I have received worldwide, including the Ribbon of Legion of Honor and my property and my bank accounts. They mean nothing to me. And I am only one among the millions of sad women like myself.

Ask Them Yourself
Engrave this Quote These women behind the store windows? Dreams, sir, dreams at bargain prices, a trip to the Indies! These people perfume themselves with spices. You enter, they close the curtains, and the trip begins. The gods descend on the nude bodies and the islands drift, demented, with the tousled hair of palm trees in the breeze.

Engrave this Quote Confusion has seized us, and all things go wrong,
The women have leaped from their spheres,
And, instead of fixed stars, shoot as comets along,
And are setting the world by the ears!

Engrave this Quote Women are a sisterhood. They make common cause in behalf of the sex; and, indeed, this is natural enough, when we consider the vast power that the law gives us over them.
