A Quote by Maya Angelou on woman, women, pride, identity, and self-image

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Maya Angelou (1928 -)

A Quote by Oprah Winfrey on woman, life, experience, and womenswisdom

I am a woman in process.  I'm just trying like everybody else.
I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it.
Life is never dull.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on partner, companion, strength, challenge, courage, toughness, woman, man, and relationship

I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.

Anaïs Nin (1903 - 1977)

A Quote by Anna Garlin Spencer on friendship, man, woman, comradeship, love, and relationships

The friendship between a man and a woman which does not lead to marriage or desire for marriage may be a life long experience of the greatest value to themselves and to all their circle of acquaintance and of activity; but for this type of friendship both a rare man and a rare woman are needed. Perhaps it should be added that either the man or the woman thus deeply bound in lifelong friendship who seeks marriage must find a still rarer man or woman to wed, to make such a three cornered comradeship a permanent success.

A Quote by Anna Garlin Spencer on woman, cultural roles, and social responsibility

No book has yet been written in praise of a woman who let her husband and children starve or suffer while she invented even the most useful things, or wrote books, or expressed herself in art, or evolved philosophic systems.

A Quote by Thomas Eugene (Tom) Robbins on goddess, feminine, and woman

Christianity is merely a system for turning priestesses into handmaidens, queens into concubines and goddesses into muses.
Who can guess into what it will turn us nymphs?
