35 Men and Women Quotes from Literature

"If men could see us as we really are, they would be a little amazed; but the cleverest, the acutest men are often under an illusion about women. They do not read them in a true light; they misapprehend them, both for good and evil. Their good woman is a queer thing, half doll, half angel; their bad woman almost always a fiend." ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte A man desires to win a virgin heart, and is happy to know,—or at least to believe,—that he has won it. With a woman every former rival is an added victim to the wheels of the triumphant chariot in which she is sitting. ~ Phineas Finn by Anthony Trollope Any woman who is sure of her own wits is a match at any time for a man who is not sure of his own temper. ~ The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins It was all very well for an Englishman like Mr. Fogg to make the tour of the world with a carpet-bag; a lady could not be expected to travel comfortably under such conditions. ~ Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne "God for men—religions for women," he muttered sometimes. ~ Nostromo by Joseph Conrad To be alone with the girl to whom he is not engaged is a man's delight; to be alone with the man to whom she is engaged is the woman's. ~ The Eustace Diamonds by Anthony Trollope "Men always want to be a woman's first love. That is their clumsy vanity. We women have a more subtle instinct about things. What we like is to be a man's last romance." ~ A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde The task of reclaiming a bad man is extremely seductive to good women. ~ The Ordeal of Richard Feverel by George Meredith There she plucked from my lapel the invisible strand of lint (the universal act of woman to proclaim ownership). ~ Strictly Business by O. Henry He was gradually discovering the delight there is in frank kindness and companionship between a man and a woman who have no passion to hide or confess. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot
