JULES MICHELET
French historian

      - [Silence]

Woman is a miracle of divine contradictions.
      - [Caprice]

Woman is a miracle of divine contradictions.
      - [Fickleness]

Woman is the Sunday of man: not his repose only, but his joy; the salt of his life.
      - [Women]

Woman's happiness consists in obeying; she objects to a man who yields too much.
      - [Obedience]

Women are perfectly well aware that the more they seem to obey the more they rule.
      - [Obedience]
