Shall I, wasting in despaire,
  Dye because a woman's faire?
    Or make pale my cheeks with care
      Cause another's rosie are?
        Be shee fairer than the day,
          Or the flow'ry meads in May;
            If she be not so to me,
              What care I how faire shee be?
      - George Wither (Whyther or Withers),
        Mistresse of Philarete

I lament that women are systematically degraded by receiving the trivial attentions, which men think it manly to pay to the sex, when, in fact, they are insultingly supporting their own superiority.
      - Mary Wollstonecraft,
        A Vindication of the Rights of Women
         (ch. 4)

I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman.
      - Virginia Woolf (nee Stephen) (Adeline Virginia Woolf)

Women have served all these centuries as looking glasses possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of man, at twice its natural size.
      - Virginia Woolf (nee Stephen) (Adeline Virginia Woolf)

American ladies are known abroad for two distinguishing traits (besides, possibly, their beauty and self-reliance), and these are their ill-health and their extravagant devotion to dress.
      - Abba Goold Woolson

A Creature not too bright or good
  For human nature's daily food;
    For transient sorrows, simple wiles,
      Praise, blame, love, kisses, tears and smiles.
      - William Wordsworth,
        She was a Phantom of Delight

A perfect Woman, nobly planned
  To warn, to comfort, and command.
      - William Wordsworth,
        She was a Phantom of Delight

And now I see with eye serene,
  The very pulse of the machine;
    A Being breathing thoughtful breath,
      A Traveller betwixt life and death;
        The reason firm, the temperate will,
          Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill.
      - William Wordsworth,
        She was a Phantom of Delight

She was a Phantom of delight
  When first she gleamed upon my sight;
    A lovely Apparition, sent
      To be a moment's ornament.
      - William Wordsworth,
        She was a Phantom of Delight

Shalt show us how divine a thing
  A Woman may be made.
      - William Wordsworth,
        To a Young Lady--Dear Child of Nature

A shameless woman is the worst of men.
      - Edward Young

If you resent, and wish a woman ill,
  But turn her o'er one moment to her will.
      - Edward Young

When women sue, they sue to be denied.
      - Edward Young

Women were made to give our eyes delight;
  A female sloven is an odious sight.
      - Edward Young

And beautiful as sweet!
  And young as beautiful! and soft as young!
    And gay as soft! and innocent as gay.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night III, l. 81)

Women hold up half the sky.
      - Mao Zedong (Mao Tse-Tung) (Chairman Mao)
