Women's Voices: Quotations by Women
Quote collection assembled by Jone Johnson Lewis
Quotation: Anyone, however, who has had dealings with dates knows that they are worse than elusive, they are perverse. Events do not happen at the right time, nor in their proper sequence. That sense of harmony with place and season which is so strong in the historian -- if he be a readable historian -- is lamentably lacking in history, which takes no pains to verify his most convincing statements.
Quotation: it is not depravity that afflicts the human race so much as a general lack of intelligence.
Quotation: Too much rigidity on the part of teachers should be followed by a brisk spirit of insubordination on the part of the taught.
Quotation: It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.
Quotation: We are tethered to our kind, and may as well join hands in the struggle.
Quotation: Again, in the stress of modern life, how little room is left for that most comfortable vanity which whispers in our ears that failures are not faults! now we are taught from infancy that we must rise or fall upon our own merits; that vigilance means success, and incapacity means ruin.
Quotation: A world of vested interests is not a world which welcomes the disruptive force of candor.
Quotation: It is hard for us who live in an age of careless and cheerful tolerance to understand the precise inconveniences attending religious persecution.
Quotation: It has been well said that tea is suggestive of a thousand wants, from which spring the decencies and luxuries of civilization.
Quotation: People who cannot recognize a palpable absurdity are very much in the way of civilization.
Quotation: On the preservation of the Comic Spirit depends in some measure the ultimate triumph of civilization. Science may carry us to Mars, but it will leave the earth peopled as ever by the inept.
