Quote Left Surviving is important. Thriving is elegant. Quote Right
Quote Left Where the voice of the wind calls our wandering feet, Through echoing forest and echoing street, With lutes in our hands ever-singing we roam, All men are our kindred, the world is our home. Our lays are of cities whose lustre is shed, The laughter and beauty of women long dead; The sword of old battles, the crown of old kings, And happy and simple and sorrowful things. What hope shall we gather, what dreams shall we sow? Where the wind calls our wandering footsteps we go. No love bids us tarry, no joy bids us wait: The voice of the wind is the voice of our fate. Quote Right

Quote Left Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size But when I start to tell them, They think I'm telling lies. I say, It's in the reach of my arms The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me. I walk into a room Just as cool as you please, And to a man, The fellows stand or Fall down on their knees. Then they swarm around me, A hive of honey bees. I say, It's the fire in my eyes, And the flash of my teeth, The swing in my waist, And the joy in my feet. I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me. Men themselves have wondered What they see in me. They try so much But they can't touch My inner mystery. When I try to show them They say they still can't see. I say, It's in the arch of my back, The sun of my smile, The ride of my breasts, The grace of my style. I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me. Now you understand Just why my head's not bowed. I don't shout or jump about Or have to talk real loud. When you see me passing It ought to make you proud. I say, It's in the click of my heels, The bend of my hair, the palm of my hand, The need of my care, 'Cause I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me. Quote Right

Quote Left Mistakes are a fact of life. It’s the response to the error that counts. Quote Right

Quote Left Black women have not historically stood in the pulpit, but that doesn't undermine the fact that they built the churches and maintain the pulpits. Quote Right
Quote Left Animals of the word exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than blacks were made for whites or women for men. Quote Right
Quote Left 'In the bad old days reference to Blacks/women/Jews/others were in negative language which perpetuated poor treatment/ abuse/ exploitation of these people. Animals have suffered more from negative language stereotyping than all the others, and demeans them so constantly that they created an environment that allows all sorts of cruelties, many too horrendous to describe! An animal is 'it' instead of 'he' or 'she', this perpetuates our view of them as 'things' rather than individuals and is a major first step towards cutting them up for meat and leather, testing drugs/cosmetics/ household products on their bodies, and tearing off their coats for furs!!! Those who have pets are referred to as 'owners' rather than guardians/care givers/companions, reinforcing the idea that they are property much as slaves were considered property. Let's avoid these references: Dirty rat; filthy pig; acting like an ass; dirty dog; she's a bitch; ugly duckling; there's more than one way to skin a cat; behaving like an animal; making a monkey out of someone; killing 2 birds with one stone; working like a horse, you're chicken ... There are many more! Please think before uttering them and tell others. Thank you!' Quote Right
Quote Left I am obnoxious to each carping tongue Who says my hand a needle better fits,... Quote Right
Quote Left Swiftly arose and spread around me the peace and knowledge that pass all the argument of the earth, And I know that the hand of God is the promise of my own, And I know that the spirit of God is the brother of my own, And that all the men ever born are also my brothers, and the women my sisters and lovers, And that a kelson of the creation is love. Quote Right

Quote Left Few women admit their age. Few men act theirs. Quote Right
Quote Left Eve is a twofold mystery. Quote Right
Quote Left The white American man makes the white American woman maybe not superfluous but just a little kind of decoration. Not really important to turning around the wheels of the state. Well the black American woman has never been able to feel that way. No black American man at any time in our history in the United States has been able to feel that he didn't need that black woman right against him, shoulder to shoulder -- in that cotton field, on the auction block, in the ghetto, wherever. Quote Right
Quote Left The difference in the education of men and women must give the former great advantages over the latter, even where geniuses are equal. Quote Right
Quote Left Oh, oh, you will be sorry for that word! Give back my book and take my kiss instead. Was it my enemy or my friend I heard, What a big book for such a little head! Come, I will show you now my newest hat, And you may watch me purse my mouth and prink! Oh, I shall love you still, and all of that. I never again shall tell you what I think. I shall be sweet and crafty, soft and sly; You will not catch me reading any more: I shall be called a wife to pattern by; And some day when you knock and push the door, Some sane day, not too bright and not too stormy, I shall be gone, and you may whistle for me. Quote Right
Quote Left We are persons of quality, I assure you, and women of fashion, and come to see and to be seen. Quote Right

Quote Left The great renewal of the world will perhaps consist in this, that man and maid, freed of all false feelings and reluctances, will seek each other not as opposites, but as brother and sister, as neighbors, and will come together as human beings. Quote Right
Quote Left This man is frank and earnest with women. In Fresno, he's Frank and in Chicago he's Ernest. Quote Right
Quote Left We have progressively improved into a less spiritual species of tenderness -- but the seal is not yet fixed though the wax is preparing for the impression. Quote Right
Quote Left Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. Quote Right
Quote Left I think it ticks God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it. Quote Right
Quote Left 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! Quote Right

Quote Left The writers,the women that interest me, that make me alert to the fact that there is more to “IT” than just vacuous moonbeams & miraculous waters of ambrosia swimming with castrated unicorns,are the ones that inspire me by their strength,courage & raw honesty & they are the ones who usually arrive to light through tumultuous dark days & haggard life experience, not by sitting in a green field threading daisy chains singing,"he loves me,he loves me not"- they are the ones that always win with me.

Quote Left Some women moan and rant about equal status, opportunities that women are denied, they want women to prove they are valueable and able like men, but, then, they sit down in a chair and draw their eyebrows back on. Quote Right

Quote Left For everybody in this world was born of a woman, women began it all. Whoever is on the forefront is a leader. Somebody said, "a good leader is a servant." Her husband knows that secret. Perhaps that is why she is weak nowadays. Quote Right
Quote Left When men get hurt they get told to man up and grow a pair. When women get hurt they get sympathy and cuddles. Child birth is natures way of leveling things out. Quote Right

Quote Right

Quote Left We know little about the value of money. We know cigarettes used to be a dollar fifty. Now they are averaging six fifty a pack. We know gas has seen a similar trend going up in prices as well as honey buns and gum. We know the prices are always increasing and the meaning of a dollar is in flux. We know that women still get paid about 25% less than men when doing the same tasks, and minorities see almost 40% less than whites. It seems the value of money takes skin color and gender into account." Quote Right

Quote Left Women are the makers of any home, and homes are the things which will form a better nation. Where as in such a case if the prime maker of the home with good values and noble backdrops participates in decision making and it is itself the women than the country will be benefited vigorously and vitally with a vast impact. Quote Right
Quote Left What's up with this women and children first Cr&p? Feminism like men to bear the burden, and only want equality when it serves women. It goes on every day, with women getting preferential treatment in nearly every aspect of American life. If you call yourself a feminist but expect to have inherent priority over men you ought to go to Hades. Quote Right
