PinkMonkey® Quotations on . . .
QUOTATION: Reason sits firm and holds the reins, and she will not let
the feelings burst away and hurry her to wild chasms. The passions may
rage furiously, like true heathens, as they are; and the desires may imagine
all sorts of vain things: but judgement shall still have the last word
in every argument, and the casting vote in every decision.
QUOTATION: You had no right to be born; for you make no use of life.
Instead of living for, in, and with yourself, as a reasonable being ought,
you seek only to fasten your feebleness on some other persons strength.
QUOTATION: Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel
just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field
for their efforts as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid
a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer;
and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow creatures to say
that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting
stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless
to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more
than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.
