But why give a man something it’s so hard to earn? In that respect women are really thick. They’re the daughters of rigidity. They need a man to feel secure but they don’t realize that the one thing they should be afraid of is men. They don’t know how to run their lives. They have to sacrifice themselves for the sake of someone else. Whores are the worst, patron, believe me. They throw their lives away working for some pimp, smile when he beats them, feel proud when he’s well dressed, with his gold teeth and rings on his fingers, and when he goes off and takes up with a woman half their age they forgive him everything because he’s a man.

Isabel Allende, The House of the Spirits

A man’s plumbing is like his mind: simple, very few surprises. You ladies, on the other hand…well, God put a lot of thought into making you.

Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner

They say that women dream of danger to those in their care and men of danger to themselves.

The Road, Cormac McCarthy

Girls think they’re only allowed to wear dresses on formal occasions, but I like a woman who says, you know, I’m going over to see a boy who is having a nervous breakdown, a boy whose connection to the sense of sight itself is tenuous, and gosh dang it, I am going to wear a dress for him.

John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

The three suicide sisters shared the same therapist, Dr. Emmett Meridian. He must be terrible at his job.

Dexter Morgan, Dexter

I know this sounds sexist, but it’s really hard for me to wrap my brain around the fact that women poop.

A tip for the fellows: Women don’t like it when we check our phones every 9 seconds.

Let us have wine and women, mirth and laughter, sermons and soda water the day after.

George Gordon Byron

The bicycle has done more for the emancipation of women than anything else in the world.

Susan B. Anthony

I think that you appreciate that there are extraordinary men and women and extraordinary moments when history leaps forward on the backs of these individuals, that what can be imagined can be achieved, that you must dare to dream, but that there’s no substitute for perseverance and hard work and teamwork because no one gets there alone; and that, while we commemorate the… the greatness of these events and the individuals who achieve them, we cannot forget the sacrifice of those who make these achievements and leaps possible.
