Spider Woman

Famous quotes containing the words spider and/or woman:

    This Frey seems thus to us:
    Hells Spider gets
    His intrails spun to whip Cords thus,
    And wove to nets,
    And sets.
    Edward Taylor (1645–1729)

    I repeat, sir, that in whatever position you place a woman she is an ornament to society and a treasure to the world. As a sweetheart, she has few equals and no superiors; as a cousin, she is convenient; as a wealthy grandmother with an incurable distemper, she is precious; as a wet-nurse, she has no equal among men. What, sir, would the people of the earth be without woman? They would be scarce, sir, almighty scarce.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
