CAPRICE
[ Also see Fickleness ]

There is a vein of inconsistency in every woman's heart, within whose portals love hath entered.
      - Dorothee DeLuzy

Love has a way of cheating itself consciously, like a child who plays at solitary hide-and-seek; it is pleased with assurances that it all the while disbelieves.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

Caprice in woman is the antidote to beauty.
      - Jean de la Bruyere

Sing of the nature of women, and then the song shall be surely full of variety,--old crotchets and most sweet closes. It shall be humorous, grave, fantastical, amorous, melancholy, sprightly,--one in all, all in one.
      - John Marston

Woman is a miracle of divine contradictions.
      - Jules Michelet

There is a proverb in the South that a woman laughs when she can, and weeps when she pleases.
      - Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn

A woman's fitness comes by fits.
      - William Shakespeare

How wayward is this foolish love, that, like a testy babe, will scratch the nurse and presently, all humble, kiss the rod.
      - William Shakespeare

"One might almost fear," writes a thoughtful woman, "seeing how the women of to-day are lightly stirred up to run after some new fashion or faith, that heaven is not so near to them as it was to their mothers and grandmothers."
      - Samuel Smiles

There are women so hard to please that it would seem as if nothing less than an angel would suit them; and hence it comes that they often encounter devils.
      - Marguerite de Valois
