“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

C. JoyBell C.
“I come across too much material on "how to make a man want you", "how to make a man commit", "how to make a man finally pop the question", "how to make a man take you seriously", "how to get into a man's emotions." And I laugh. My dear fellow women, enough! Do not busy yourselves with such things! Instead, fall in love with yourself!”
C. JoyBell C.

“Young girls today are very mistaken to be thinking that their sense of self-worth and their acknowledgment of their beauty depends on whether a man will give that to them or not. Such naïveté! And so what will happen when the man changes his mind about her? Tells her she's not beautiful enough? That she's not good enough? Cheats on her? Leaves her? Then what happens? She will lose all her self-worth, she will think she is not good enough, she is not beautiful enough, because all of those feelings depended on the man in the first place! And along with the loss of the man, it will all be lost as well! Mothers, teach your daughters better. It pains me to see such naive innocence right under my nose! Such naïveté does no good for any girl. It is better for a girl to be worldly-wise and have street-smarts! That's what a girl needs to have in life! Not wide-eyed delusional innocence! The sense of self-worth and acknowledgment of being beautiful must not come from a man, it must come from inside the woman herself, men will come and men will go and their coming and going must not take an effect on the woman's sense of worth and beauty.”

Elena Ferrante
“Once, she closed the book abruptly and said with annoyance, "That's enough." "Why?" "Because I've had it, it's always the same story: inside something small there's something even smaller that wants to leap out, and outside something large there's always someting larger that wants to keep it a prisoner.”
Elena Ferrante, The Story of a New Name

David Mitchell
“A weapon men use against women is the refusal to take them seriously.”
David Mitchell, Ghostwritten

Kevin Ansbro, The Minotaur's Son & Other Wild Tales

pretty colors, but men get the comfortable shoes.

Mallika  Nawal
“She turned and bolted out the door. She had learnt an important lesson - "When a man paid 'for' you...you paid 'to' him." It was her first Valentine slaughter.”
Mallika Nawal, I'm a Woman & I'm on SALE

“Marian exhaled. 'Because God made me a woman is no reason to be such a woman as men wish to make me.”
A.E. Chandler, The Scarlet Forest: A Tale of Robin Hood

“Now we really like to put people in boxes. As men, we do it because we don't understand characters that aren't ourselves and we aren't willing to put ourselves in the skin of those characters and women, I think, terrify us. We tend not to write women as human beings. It's cartoons we're making now. And that's a shame.”
Paul Haggis

“All beautiful women are murderers. You've probably heard it said before.”
Mike Lester, An Occasional Dream

Edan Lepucki
“Men were stupid to forget what good sleuths women could be.”
Edan Lepucki, California

Karen  Gibbs
“Women KNOW, we just know. Even if we didn't know, we would know. Men won't get this, but women will..because we KNOW”
Karen Gibbs, A Gallery of Scrapbook Creations

Ford Madox Ford
“Well she was bright; and she danced...And my function in life was to keep that bright thing in existence. And it was almost as difficult as trying to catch with your hand that dancing reflection. And the task lasted for years.”
Ford Madox Ford, The Good Soldier

Colin Tegerdine
“Love is a trick best performed by men.”
Colin Tegerdine, You Can't Google Life

Charles Bukowski
“When women agree with me I always do the other thing”
Charles Bukowski, Portions from a Wine-Stained Notebook: Uncollected Stories and Essays, 1944-1990

Isak Dinesen
“From my journeys in southern Europe I have gained the impression that in our time the Virgin Mary is the only heavenly creature who is really beloved by millions. But I believe these millions would be uncomprehending and perhaps even offended if I were to tell them that the Virgin Mary had made a significant discovery, solved difficult mathematical problems, or masterfully organized and administered an association of housewives in Nazareth.”
Isak Dinesen, Daguerreotypes and Other Essays

Jonathan Gash
“Women are odd. I really mean that. A woman doesn't know the effect she has on a man. Any woman affects every man with instant global tonnage every single time. But women all go about teaching each other it isn't true. God knows why. They reach for doubt, where we blokes go for hope. This accounts for much of their behavior.”
Jonathan Gash, The Great California Game

R. Alan Woods
“Women are people too".”
R. Alan Woods

Rebecca Barnhouse
“If a woman tells a man the god favor him, everybody says she's far-minded.' The broom halted mid-sweep and the slave turned to Hild. 'But let a woman do what the gods tell her, without asking a man's permission first? Then she's possessed.' Unwen punctuated her words with her broom, jabbing it into the corner.”
Rebecca Barnhouse, Peaceweaver

Nora Roberts
“There were too many idiot men in the world, to her way of thinking. And most of them ended up bumping up against stubborn women.”
Nora Roberts, Dance Upon the Air

Anna Hope
“Unlike music, excessive reading has been shown to be dangerous for the female mind. It was taught in our earliest lectures: the male cells are essentially katabolic: active energetic; and female cells are anabolic: there to conserve energy and support life. While a little light reading is fine, breakdown follows when woman goes against her nature.”
Anna Hope, The Ballroom

Daphne du Maurier
“What trail of thought, confused and indirect, drove through those minds of theirs, to cloud their judgement? What waves of impulse swept about their being, moving them to anger and withdrawal, or else to sudden generosity? We were surely different, with our blunter comprehension, moving more slowly to the compass points, while they, erratic and unstable, were blown about their course by winds of fancy.”
Daphne du Maurier, My Cousin Rachel

Camilla Collett
“-« det er den (Kvinnens sjel) som gjør hennes glede mer strålende, og hennes hengivelse og utholdenhet i motgang større enn noen sinne mannens. Han taler og handler, hun lider og tier. Ja, den er vakker, denne viljen til å lide og tie, denne Guds og naturens taushet i henne, den er skapt til å seire i sin stille makt.”
Camilla Collett, Amtmannens døtre

Camilla Collett
“« Det er en kvinnes bestemmelse å oppofre seg.»”
Camilla Collett, Amtmannens døtre

“If they don't appreciate you at your best, do you think they will do it at your worst? Learn or perish.”
Emmanuel Apetsi
