FRANCES P. COBBE
English author
(1822 - 1904)

He who does most to cure woman of her weakness, her frivolity, and her servility will likewise at the same stroke do most to cure man of his brutality, his selfishness and his sensuality.
      - [Weakness]

If a woman be herself pure and noble-hearted, she will come into every circle as a person does into a heated room, who carries with him the freshness of the woods where he has been walking.
      - [Purity]

It is a woman, and only a woman,--a woman all by herself, if she likes, and without any man to help her,--who can turn a house into a home.
      - [Home]

It is in the faculty of noble, disinterested, unselfish love that lies the true gift and power of womanhood,--a power which makes us, not the equal of men (I never care to claim such equality), but their equivalents; more than their equivalents in a moral sense.
      - [Power]

Love naturally reverses the idea of obedience, and causes the struggle between any two who truly love each other to be, not who shall command, but who shall yield.
      - [Obedience]

Morality may exist in an atheist without any religion, and in a theist with a religion quite unspiritual.
      - [Morality]

Our sex bears the disgrace not only of a great deal of genuine poltroonery, but also of much which is mere affectation.
      - [Women]

Pleasures of the mind have this advantage,--they never cloy nor wear themselves out, but increase by employment.
      - [Pleasure]

The nest may be constructed, so far as the sticks go, by the male bird; but only the hen can line it with moss and down!
      - [Domesticity]

This specter of the female politician, who abandons her family to neglect for the sake of passing bills in parliament, is just as complete an illusion of the masculine brain, as the other specter whom Sydney Smith laid by a joke,--the woman who would forsake an infant for a quadratic equation.
      - [Wives]
