Somewhere out in this audience may even be someone who will one day follow in my footsteps, and preside over the White House as the President's spouse. I wish him well!
      - Barbara Bush,
        at Wellesley College Commencement

The souls of women are so small,
  That some believe they've none at all;
    Or if they have, like cripples, still
      They've but one faculty, the will.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Miscellaneous Thoughts

There are female women, and there are male women.
      - Charles Buxton

Women see through and through each other; and often we most admire her whom they most scorn.
      - Charles Buxton

"Petticoat influence" is a great reproach,
  Which e'en those who obey would fain be thought
    To fly from, as from hungry pikes a roach;
      But since beneath it upon earth we're brought
        By various joltings of life's hackney coach,
          I for one venerate a petticoat--
            A garment of mystical sublimity,
              No matter whether russet, silk, or dimity.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

She was a soft landscape of mild earth,
  Where all was harmony, and calm, and quiet,
    Luxuriant, budding; cheerful without mirth,
      Which, if not happiness, is much more nigh it
        Than are your mighty passions.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Some waltz; some draw; some fathom the abyss
  Of metaphysics; others are content
    With music; the most moderate shine as wits,
      While others have a genius turn'd for fits.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

The very first
  Of human life must spring from woman's breast:
    Your first small words are taught you from her lips;
      Your first tears quench'd by her, and your last sighs
        Too often breath'd out in a woman's hearing,
          When men have shrunk from the ignoble care
            Of watching the last hour of him who led them.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Heart on her lips, and soul within her eyes,
  Soft as her clime, and sunny as her skies.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Beppo (st. 45)

Soft as the memory of buried love,
  Pure as the prayer which childhood wafts above.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Bride of Abydos (canto I, st. 6)

The Niobe of nations! There she stands,
  Childless and crownless, in her voiceless woe.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childe Harold (canto IV, st. 79)

Her stature tall--I hate a dumpy woman.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto I, st. 61)

A lady with her daughters or her nieces,
  Shines like a guinea and seven shilling pieces.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto III, st. 60)

What a strange thing is man! and what a stranger
  Is woman! What a whirlwind is her head,
    And what a whirlpool full of depth and danger
      Is all the rest about her.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto IX, st. 64)

I love the sex, and sometimes would reverse
  The tyrant's wish, "that mankind only had
    One neck, which he with one fell stroke might pierce;"
      My wish is quite as wide, but not so bad,
        And much more tender on the whole than fierce;
          It being (not now, but only while a lad)
            That womankind had but one rosy mouth,
              To kiss them all at once, from North to South.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto VI, st. 27)

But she was a soft landscape of mild earth,
  Where all was harmony, and calm, and quiet,
    Luxuriant, budding; cheerful without mirth.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto VI, st. 53)

I've seen your stormy seas and stormy women,
  And pity lovers rather more than seamen.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto VI, st. 53)

And whether coldness, pride, or virtue dignify
  A woman, so she's good, what does it signify?
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto XIV, st. 57)

Believe a woman or an epitaph,
  Or any other thing that's false.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        English Bards and Scotch Reviewers

She was his life,
  The ocean to the river of his thoughts,
    Which terminated all.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        The Dream (st. 2)

The world was sad; the garden was a wild;
  And man, the hermit, sigh'd--till woman smiled.
      - Thomas Campbell, Pleasures of Hope
         (pt. II, l. 37)

Of all the girls that are so smart,
  There's none like pretty sally;
    She is the darling of my heart,
      And lives in our alley.
      - Henry Carey, Sally in our Alley

What a woman says to her fond lover should be written on air or the swift water.
  [Lat., Mulier cupido quod dicit amanti,
    In vento et rapida scribere oportet aqua.]
      - Catullus (Caius Quintus Valerius Catullus),
        (Latin)

There is no jewel in the world so valuable as a chaste and virtuous woman.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)

The woman who is resolved to be respected can make herself so even amidst an army of soldiers.
  [Sp., La mugur que se determina a ser honrada entre un ejercito de soldados lo puede ser.]
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra),
        La Gitanilla
