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

“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.

“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

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

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

“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

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

Mary E. Pearson
“I walked up to Griz and poked him in the chest. "Let me make this perfectly clear to you. Though some might seek to make it appear otherwise, I am not a bride to be bartered away to another kingdom, not a prize of war, not a mouthpiece for your Komizar. I am not a chip in a card game to be mindlessly tossed into the center of the pot, nor one to be kept in the tight fist of a greedy opponent. I am a player seated at the table alongside everyone else, and from this day forward, I will play my own hand as I see fit. Do you understand me? Because the consequences could be ugly if someone thought otherwise.”
Mary E. Pearson, The Heart of Betrayal

“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

“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

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

“I make no apologies that your balls aren't big enough to handle my personality!”

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

“I am a mentally strong woman. I don’t sit around feeling sorry for my circumstances and brooding over people who mistreat me. I am in complete control of my life I will not allow random people to dictate terms to me.I don’t waste my energy by responding to people who are constantly trying to knock me down. I am confident that if I am shattered I can come back even stronger because I am determined to be a survivor and not a victim of deceitful and selfish actions of people. I believe that there is nothing in this world which I cannot accomplish because nothing can stop me from being an achiever…”
Aarti Khurana

“Do not judge a woman on her knees: you never know how tall she is when she stands.”
Mie Hansson, Where Pain Thrives

C. JoyBell C.
“Every girl and every woman, has the potential to make this world a better place, and that potential lies in the act of thinking higher thoughts and feeling deeper things. When women and girls, everywhere, begin to see themselves as more than inanimate objects; but as beautiful beings capable of deep feelings and high thoughts, this has the capacity to create change all around. The kind of change that is for the better. Remember: High in the head and deep in the heart. Antlers on your mind and anchors in your heart.”
C. JoyBell C.

Mie Hansson
“I am the interpretation of the prophet
I am the artist in the coffin
I am the brave flag stained with blood
I am the wounds overcome
I am the dream refusing to sleep
I am the bare-breasted voice of liberty
I am the comic the insult and the laugh
I am the right the middle and the left
I am the poached eggs in the sky
I am the Parisian streets at night
I am the dance that swings till dawn
I am the grass on the greener lawn
I am the respectful neighbour and the graceful man
I am the encouraging smile and the helping hand
I am the straight back and the lifted chin
I am the tender heart and the will to win
I am the rainbow in rain
I am the human who won’t die in vain
I am Athena of Greek mythology
I am the religion that praises equality
I am the woman of stealth and affection
I am the man of value and compassion
I am the wild horse ploughing through
I am the shoulder to lean onto
I am the Muslim the Jew and the Christian
I am the Dane the French and the Palestinian
I am the straight the square and the round
I am the white the black and the brown
I am the free speech and the free press
I am the freedom to express
I will die for my right to be all the above here mentioned
And should threat encounter I’ll pull my pencil”
Mie Hansson, Where Pain Thrives

Marge Piercy
“A strong woman is a woman determined to do something others are determined not be done”
Marge Piercy

Mie Hansson
“It’s just another stop on the curvy road
the final encounter
for the man who has lived
death is the answer.”
Mie Hansson, Where Pain Thrives
