“It is better to be looked over than overlooked.”
Mae West

C. JoyBell C.
“I believe in strong women. I believe in the woman who is able to stand up for herself. I believe in the woman who doesn't need to hide behind her husband's back. I believe that if you have problems, as a woman you deal with them, you don't play victim, you don't make yourself look pitiful, you don't point fingers. You stand and you deal. You face the world with a head held high and you carry the universe in your heart.”
C. JoyBell C.

Jennifer Donnelly
“For mad I may be, but I will never be convenient.”
Jennifer Donnelly, Revolution

C. JoyBell C.
“I have met so many heartbroken men. It's a catastrophe. Women are easily overcome by the process that happens when a boy falls in love and becomes a man. Men's hearts are so often broken. Still, you have to leave your broken heart in a place where- when the woman who knows how to see what a gift is, sees it- your broken heart can be picked up again. I think that it takes a very strong woman (inner strength) to be able to handle a man falling in love with her, without morphing into a monster (the process is a very potent process, it can poison a woman, really). A woman thinks she wants a man to fall in love with her for all the perks that come with it; but when a real love really does happen, when a real man shows his manhood; it's often too powerful a thing to endure without being poisoned. Hence, all the heartbroken men. But, I do believe that there are strong women in the world today. A few. But there are. You could say, that the mark of a real woman, is a woman who can handle a man- a man falling in love with her. A woman who can recognize that, and keep it with her.”
C. JoyBell C.

“With the spread of conformity and image-driven superficiality, the allure of an individuated woman in full possession of herself and her powers will prove irresistible. We were born for plenitude and inner fulfillment.”
Elizabeth Prioleau, Seductress - Women Who Ravished the World and Their Lost Art of Love

Karen Hawkins
“I’ve often thought it unfair that women are expected to stay at home when there’s a fight to be won. If a
woman has the strength to bear a child, she can swing a sword as well as any man.”
Karen Hawkins, How to Abduct a Highland Lord

“I do not fix problems. I fix my thinking. Then problems fix themselves.”
Louise Hay

Michael Cadnum
“No woman who had been intimate with a god was easily disturbed.”
Michael Cadnum

“A strong woman builds her own world. She is one who is wise enough to know that it will attract the man she will gladly share it with.”
Ellen J. Barrier, How to Trust God When All Other Resources Have Failed

Mae West
“A man in the house is worth two on the street.”
Mae West, Goodness Had Nothing To Do With It

“We women talk too much, but even then we don't tell half what we know.”
Nancy Astor the Viscountess Astor

“Nancy Astor: "Sir, if you were my husband, I'd poison your tea."
Winston Churchill: "Madame,i f you were my wife, I'd drink it!"
(Exchange with Winston Churchill)”
Nancy Astor the Viscountess Astor

Taylor Stevens
“Lumani had never managed a failed delivery because, in the end, no matter how skilled or how hard they fought back, pressure applied in the right places caused even the strongest men to fracture.
But this one? He'd watched her. Studied her. Observed what maybe even Uncle, the reader of people, had missed. This one was already fractured, and the lines between her broken pieces were not fissures but scar material stronger than whatever had once filled those spaces.”
Taylor Stevens, The Doll

Liliana Shelbrook
“You’re a lady. It’s written all over you, but the West doesn’t forgive any woman-unless she’s got a man.”
Liliana Shelbrook, Lantern in the Mist

Dennis Sharpe
“Standing in front of him I wipe his liquid from the corner of my mouth and stare deeply. I can see the panic in his eyes. I can smell his fear, deep, rich and growing, and for the first time tonight I’m actually aroused.”
Dennis Sharpe, Blood & Spirits

S.L. Jennings
“SUBJECT: Real original
Dear Dark Assholes,
I get the point. Showing me that you know how to log onto a computer and utilize Google must’ve taken some pretty keen strategizing on your part.
Really, really cool trick. Now leave me the hell alone.
-The DL”
S.L. Jennings, The Dark Prince

C. JoyBell C.
“I believe that women ought to be more proactive about making choices in life. I think that I am not happy about seeing women take the passenger's seat and playing the victim game all too often. If you know a guy is engaged, don't kiss him! There is another woman in the situation whom you are hurting and that other woman could have very well been you, your sister, your mother! If someone is committed, don't sleep with him! There is another woman in the picture that is going to get hurt and that other woman is your sister, just because she is a woman too! This is the kind of proactive I want to see in women, everywhere. We're not victims of the choices that we make; we made those choices! Is another woman doing good? More successful? Happier? Good for her. Because she is your sister and she could very well be you. Let's respect the relationships, the personal paths, the doors and the walkways of our fellow women and let us wish one another the utmost happiness. Because this is the only way up and out.”
C. JoyBell C.

Nahoko Uehashi
“Balsa seemed invincible, endowed with powers no other warrior could match, but in her profile he could glimpse the shadow of a young girl, hurt and buffeted by a cruel and hopeless fate. If he had never experienced what it was like to be at the mercy of fate himself, he would not have noticed, but now he could see it with unbearable, heartrending clarity.”
Nahoko Uehashi, Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit

“Beautiful princesses and beautiful, strong queens are brainwashed into thinking ho’s and B****’s are virtuous titles.”
Delano Johnson, Words That Changed the World

Maggie Young
“I am done looking for love where it doesn’t exist. I am done coughing up dust in attempts to drink from dry wells.”
Maggie Young

Amy Winehouse
“I wouldn't say I'm a feminist, but I don't like girls pretending to be stupid because it's easier.”
Amy Winehouse, Back to Black

Jenna Brooks
“I admired so many things about you. Almost everything. But I don’t want to wind up like you. I don’t want to starve to death, all alone on some island inside my own head. Hopeless.”
Jenna Brooks, October Snow

“You should not think too much on things that do not work in your life, this can affect the gears of the things that work.”
Davi Oliveira

Sarah Rees Brennan
“She had spent so much time worrying that accepting love, becoming part of all the love stories, would trap her in some way, change her into someone weak, someone she did not want to be. But she realized now that she had been narrow - minded, considering a love story as a lesser story, a story that might make her lesser to be part of. She had always thought she needed to be in control, but now she found she did not want to put any limits on herself at all.”
Sarah Rees Brennan, Unmade

Kimberly Black
“In writing, a good guy must never break any of the Ten Commandments. A bad guy must break every one. That's why writing female characters is so much fun. They're not GUYS at all.”
Kimberly Black, A Fiction Writer's Character Workbook

Tara Brown
“I watched you fall in love with me. I saw the smile cross your lips when it happened. I remember that day. I was the first day I knew I had no heart.”
Tara Brown, Vengeance (The Blood Trail Chronicles)

Karen  Gibbs
“Just because I give you my all, doesn't mean I'm a pushover. Don't make the mistake of underestimating me. Push too hard and you'll see how strong I really am!”
Karen Gibbs

Heather R. Blair
“Did you really think giving yourself up to me would save her?”

Miles gave a wide, slow smile that showed the glint of his fangs, his eyes never leaving Reegan’s face even as Kelsey moved into his line of sight.

“Not at all. I merely thought it would give her time to save herself, you deluded piece of shit.”
Heather R. Blair, Phoenix Rising

Margaret Atwood
“Ger says that Kat has a tendency to push things to extremes, to go over the edge, merely from a juvenile desire to shock, which is hardly a substitute for wit. One of these days, he says, she will go way too far. Too far for him, is what he means.”
Margaret Atwood, Wilderness Tips

L.P. Maxa
“I hope that your plane crashes over the ocean and piranhas eat your balls. It was lovely meeting you, you self-righteous egoistical son of a bitch. I can see where Joey gets his psychotic behavior.”
L.P. Maxa, Dominic and Corey
