I measure the progress of a community by the degree of progress which women have achieved.
B. R. Ambedkar
A woman has two smiles that an angel might envy, the smile that accepts a lover before words are uttered, and the smile that lights on the first born babe, and assures it of a mother's love.
Thomas Chandler Haliburton
As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.
How wrong it is for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself.
No doubt exists that all women are crazy; it's only a question of degree.
W. C. Fields
Women have always been the strong ones of the world. The men are always seeking from women a little pillow to put their heads down on. They are always longing for the mother who held them as infants.
Women will never be as successful as men because they have no wives to advise them.
Dick Van Dyke
In our society, the women who break down barriers are those who ignore limits.
Wives are young men's mistresses, companions for middle age, and old men's nurses.
The term 'alpha female' originated in my field of animal behavior, but has acquired new meaning. It refers to women who are in charge, for example, by flirting and dating on their own terms. It is also used maliciously for a loud-mouthed, controlling woman who has no patience with deviating opinions.
Frans de Waal
After all those years as a woman hearing 'not thin enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough, not this enough, not that enough,' almost overnight I woke up one morning and thought, 'I'm enough.'
The age of a woman doesn't mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It may be the cock that crows, but it is the hen that lays the eggs.
Girls have an unfair advantage over men: if they can't get what they want by being smart, they can get it by being dumb.
I like intelligent women. When you go out, it shouldn't be a staring contest.
Being the boss anywhere is lonely. Being a female boss in a world of mostly men is especially so.
I think that women just have a primeval instinct to make soup, which they will try to foist on anybody who looks like a likely candidate.
Honor your daughters. They are honorable.
I would not send a poor girl into the world, ignorant of the snares that beset her path; nor would I watch and guard her, till, deprived of self-respect and self-reliance, she lost the power or the will to watch and guard herself.
I do not wish women to have power over men; but over themselves.
If women were particular about men's characters, they would never get married at all.
George Bernard Shaw
Women must tell men always that they are the strong ones. They are the big, the strong, the wonderful. In truth, women are the strong ones. It is just my opinion, I am not a professor.
I owe nothing to Women's Lib.
Women have always been courageous... They are always fearless when protecting their children and in the last century they have been fearless in the fight for their rights.
Women cannot complain about men anymore until they start getting better taste in them.
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
