The beauty of a lovely woman is like music.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

They the royal-hearted women are
  Who nobly love the noblest, yet have grace
    For needy suffering lives in lowliest place,
      Carrying a choicer sunlight in their smile,
        The heavenliest ray that pitieth the vile.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

To think of the part one little woman can play in the life of a man, so that to renounce her may be a very good imitation of heroism, and to win her may be a discipline.

When greater perils men inviron,
  Then women show a front of iron;
    And, gentle in their manner, they
      Do bold things in a quiet way.

Women are like pictures: of no value in the hands of a fool till he hears men of sense bid high for the purchase.

Women never truly command till they have given their promise to obey; and they are never in more danger of being made slaves than when the men are at their feet.

Our sex still strikes an awe upon the brave,
  And only cowards dare affront a woman.

Toughness doesn't have to come in a pinstripe suit.
      - Dianne Feinstein,
        on women's role in government, quoted in "Time" magazine

      - Owen Felltham (Feltham)

Most men like in women what is most opposite their own characters.
