Woman Quotes

The modern fairy tale ending is the reverse of the traditional one A woman does not wait for Prince Charming to bring her happiness she lives happily ever after only by refusing to wait for him -- or by actually rejecting him.

The wonderful scope and variety of female loveliness, if too long suffered to sway us without decision, shall finally confound all power of selection.
