Women

Famous quotes containing the word women:

    I argued that the chastity of women was of much more consequence than that of men, as the property and rights of families depend upon it.
    James Boswell (1740–1795)

    There are some women ... in whom conscience is so strongly developed that it leaves little room for anything else. Love is scarcely felt before duty rushes to encase it, anger impossible because one must always be calm and see both sides, pity evaporates in expedients, even grief is felt as a sort of bruised sense of injury, a resentment that one should have grief forced upon one when one has always acted for the best.
    Sylvia Townsend Warner (1893–1978)

    Thirty-five is a very attractive age. London society is full of women of the highest birth who have, of their own free choice, remained thirty-five for years.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
