Women

Famous quotes containing the word women:

    The myth of independence from the mother is abandoned in mid- life as women learn new routes around the mother—both the mother without and the mother within. A mid-life daughter may reengage with a mother or put new controls on care and set limits to love. But whatever she does, her child’s history is never finished.
    Terri Apter (20th century)

    Men subsequently put whatever is newly learned or experienced to use as a plowshare, perhaps even as a weapon: but women immediately include it among their ornaments.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    A homely face and no figure have aided many women heavenward.
    Minna Antrim (1861–?)
