    This sort of thing may be tolerated by the French—but we are British, thank God.
    Bernard Law, 1st Viscount Montgomery Of Alamein Montgomery (1887–1976)

    The militancy of men, through all the centuries, has drenched the world with blood, and for these deeds of horror and destruction men have been rewarded with monuments, with great songs and epics. The militancy of women has harmed no human life save the lives of those who fought the battle of righteousness. Time alone will reveal what reward will be allotted to women.
    Emmeline Pankhurst (1858–1928)
