Masculine Quotations

You don't have to play masculine to be a strong woman.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Male and female represent the two sides of the great radical dualism. But in fact they are perpetually passing into one another. Fluid hardens to solid, solid rushes to fluid. There is no wholly masculine man, no purely feminine woman.
Margaret Fuller

My style is schizophrenic! One minute I'll be wearing bright girly dresses, and the next I'll be swinging towards more structured masculine things.
Tamsin Egerton

From the days of biplanes and silk scarves, the aviator has been the archetype of masculine glamour. Aviators have personified national ideals, from French elan to Soviet party discipline. They've inspired lust and admiration. They've turned sunglasses and short, utilitarian leather jackets into fashion statements.
Virginia Postrel

What is the most beautiful in virile men is something feminine; what is most beautiful in feminine women is something masculine.
Susan Sontag
