~ Stanley Baldwin, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

Men look at themselves in mirrors. Women look for themselves!
~ Elissa Melamed, author

Women do not find it difficult nowadays to behave like men, but they often find it extremely difficult to behave like gentlemen.
~ Compton Mackenzie, English-born Scottish novelist

One is not born a woman, one becomes one.
~ Simone de Beauvoir, feminist

A man chases a woman until she catches him.
~ American Proverb

Nature has given women so much power that the law has very wisely given them little.
~ Samuel Johnson, essayist, poet, and biographer

Women are wiser than men because they know less and understand more.
