Species Females

Famous quotes containing the words species and/or females:

    Any reading not of a vicious species must be a good substitute for the amusements too apt to fill up the leisure of the labouring classes.
    James Madison (1751–1836)

    Nature has not placed us in an inferior rank to men, no more than the females of other animals, where we see no distinction of capacity, though I am persuaded if there was a commonwealth of rational horses ... it would be an established maxim amongst them that a mare could not be taught to pace.
    Mary Wortley, Lady Montagu (1689–1762)
