Women

The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is ''What does a woman want?''

Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) Austrian fhysician. Founder of Psychoanalysis.

As a woman I have no country. As a woman my country is the whole world.

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) British novelist and essayist.

The strength of women comes from the fact that psychology cannot explain us. Men can be analyzed, women merely adored.

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Irish poet and dramatist.

There is only one real tragedy in a woman's life. The fact that her past is always her lover, and her future invariably her husband.

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Irish poet and dramatist.

If they are ignorant, they are despised, if learned, mocked. In love they are reduced to the status of courtesans. As wives they are treated more as servants than as companions. Men do not love them: they make use of them, they exploit them, and expect, in that way, to make them subject to the law of fidelity.

George Sand (1804-1876) French Romantic writer.

Most women defend themselves. It is the female of the species -- it is the tigress and lioness in you -- which tends to defend when attacked.

Margaret Thatcher (1925-?) British statewoman.

The Woman-Soul leadeth us upward and on!

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832) German poet, novelist and dramatist.

When women love us, they forgive us everything, even our crimes; when they do not love us, they give us credit for nothing, not even out virtues.

Honore de Balzac (1799-1850) French novelist.

We have dreamt of every woman there is, and dreamt too of the miracle that would bring us the pleasure of being a woman, for women have all the qualities -- courage, passion, the capacity to love, cunning -- whereas all our imagination can do is naively pile up the illusion of courage.

Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007) French sociologist, and philosopher.

Eve is a twofold mystery.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) British poet.
