Alfred Adler – The glory of male domination

Share this quote:
Alfred AdlerAll our institutions, our traditional attitudes, our laws, our morals, our customs, give evidence of the fact that they are determined and maintained by privileged males for the glory of male domination. These institutions reach out into the very nurseries and have a great influence upon the child’s soul.

Samuel Johnson – State of being in marriage is not natural

Share this quote:
Samuel JohnsonIt is so far from being natural for a man and woman to live in a state of marriage, that we find all the motives which they have for remaining in that connection, and the restraints which civilized society imposes to prevent separation, are hardly sufficient to keep them together.

Michel de Montaigne – Beauty is the true prerogative of women

Share this quote:
Michel de MontaigneBeauty is the true prerogative of women, and so peculiarly their own, that our sex, though naturally requiring another sort of feature, is never in its luster but when puerile and beardless, confused and mixed with theirs.

Carrie Fisher – How men and women think

Share this quote:
Carrie FisherHere’s how men think. Sex, work – and those are reversible, depending on age – sex, work, food, sports, and lastly, begrudgingly, relationships. And here’s how women think. Relationships, relationships, relationships, work, sex, shopping, weight, food.

Diane Ackerman – The purpose of ritual

Share this quote:
Diane AckermanThe purpose of ritual for men is to learn the rules of power and competition. Watching sports together, for example, they see the formal enactment of ritual, become loyal to a team, learn to conceal their vulnerability. The purpose of ritual for women (going to lunch together, sharing a favorite salon, etc.) is to learn how to make human connections. They are often more intimate and vulnerable with one another than they are with their men, and taking care of other women teaches them to take care of themselves.

In these formal ways, men and women domesticate their emotional lives. But their strategies are different, their biological itineraries are different. His sperm needs to travel, her egg needs to settle down. It’s astonishing that they survive happily at all.

Diane Ackerman   (1948-)

Jane Austen – History, real solemn history

Share this quote:
Jane AustenHistory, real solemn history, I cannot be interested in…. I read it a little as a duty; but it tells me nothing that does not either vex or weary me. The quarrels of popes and kings, with wars and pestilences in every page; the men all so good for nothing, and hardly any women at all, it is very tiresome; and yet I often think it odd that it should be so dull, for a great deal of it must be invention.

Jane Austen   (1775-1817)
