Famous quotes containing the word women:

    For most women who are considering it, single motherhood is not their first choice, but it’s not their last one either. They would prefer a husband in their family, but they’d rather have a family without one than no family at all.
    —Anne Cassidy. “Every Child Should Have a Father But....,” McCall’s (March 1985)

    What men fear most is ending up in the wrong profession; what women fear most is ending up with the wrong man.
    Chinese proverb.

    Down from the waist they are centaurs,
    Though women all above;
    But to the girdle do the gods inherit,
    Beneath is all the fiends’: there’s hell, there’s darkness,
    There is the sulphurous pit, burning, scalding,
    Stench, consumption.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
