A Quote by Anita Loos on men, people, quiet, and women

The people I'm furious with are the Women's Liberationists. They keep getting up on soapboxes and proclaiming women are brighter than men. That's true, but it should be kept quiet or it ruins the whole racket.

A Quote by Anita Brookner on friendship and women

A man can go from being a lover to being a stranger in three moves flat . . . but a woman under the guise of friendship will engage in acts of duplicity which come to light very much later. There are different species of self-justification.

A Quote by Angela Carter on emotion, fatherhood, inventions, justice, life, motherhood, satisfaction, and women

Mother goddesses are just as silly a notion as father gods. If a revival of the myths of these cults gives woman emotional satisfaction, it does so at the price of obscuring the real conditions of life. This is why they were invented in the first place.
