Many take pleasure in spreading abroad the weakness of an exalted character.
      - Sir Richard Steele

Weakness indicates dependence, and there is a degree of trust and tenderness also in it.
      - Eugene Sue (Marie Joseph Eugene Sue)

Weakness is born vanquished.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

Weakness to be wroth with weakness! woman's pleasure, woman's pain--
  Nature made them blinder motions bounded in a shallower brain.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Locksley Hall
         (st. 75)

The weakest goes to the wall.
      - David Tuvill, Essays Morall

Men are in general so tricky, so envious, and so cruel that when we find one who is only weak, we are too happy.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

Women deluded by these sentiments, sometimes boast of their weakness, cunningly obtaining power by playing on the weakness of men; and they may well glory in their illicit sway, for, like Turkish bashaws, they have more real power than their masters: but virtue is sacrificed to temporary gratifications, and the respectability of life to the triumph of an hour.
      - Mary Wollstonecraft,
        A Vindication of the Rights of Women
         (ch. 3)

The weak may be joked out of anything but their weakness.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
