Elizabeth I

I thought it was time to recognize the fairer sex. As you well know I love posting quotations, but I’ve come to realize that most quotations are attributed to men. I know for a fact that women have important thoughts on every subject, but I almost never see them published anywhere. Today I’ll be sending you quotes made by women about men. It should be interesting . . .

  • “The more I see of men, the better I like dogs.” Marie-Jeanne Roland 1754-1793
  • “Men have had the advantage of us and telling their own story. Education has been theirs insomuch higher a degree; the pen has been in their hands.” Jane Austen 1775-1817
  • “A gentleman opposed to their enfranchisement once said to me, “Women have never produced anything of any value in the world.” I told him the chief product of the women had been the men and left it to him to decide whether the product was of any value.” Anna Howard Shaw 1847-1919
  • “Intense love is often akin to intense suffering.” Francis Ellen Watkins Harper 1825-1911
  • “Passion always goes, and boredom stays. Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel 1883-1971
  • “I do not consider divorce an evil by any means. It is just as much a refuge for women married to brutal men as Canada was to the slaves of brutal masters.” Susan B Anthony 1820-1906
  • “I do not want a husband who honours me as a queen, if he does not love me as a woman.” Elizabeth I 1533-1603

This will be the first installment of quotes by women. I have many more available and will pass them on periodically because some of them are truly profound. For my friend in Romania many thanks for prodding me to do the required research. I appreciate it.
