13 things about Dane Bramage
13 Quotes About Women

Women... can't live with 'em... can't shoot 'em. At least according to Ivan Turgenev. Some other famous people said some things about the fairer sex. Here are 13 of them.
  1. Kathy Lette Age to women is like Kryptonite to Superman.
  2. Groucho Marx A woman can smell mink through six inches of lead.
  3. Eleanor Roosevelt A woman is like a tea bag - you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.
  4. W. E. B. Du Bois All womanhood is hampered today because the world on which it is emerging is a world that tries to worship both virgins and mothers and in the end despises motherhood and despoils virgins.
  5. Louis XIV I could sooner reconcile all Europe than two women.
  6. Teresa Heinz Kerry I mention my age because I find people in this country - women, not men, of course - women are so troubled by their age. There's a culture of youth, and it's a phony culture.
  7. Gilda Radner I'd much rather be a woman than a man. Women can cry, they can wear cute clothes, and they are the first to be rescued off of sinking ships.
  8. Will Rogers There's two theories to arguing with a woman. Neither one works.
  9. Bill Vaughan Now that women are jockeys, baseball umpires, atomic scientists, and business executives, maybe someday they can master parallel parking.
  10. Samuel Butler Brigands demand your money or your life; women require both.
  11. Diane Johnson Men are generally more law-abiding than women. Women have the feeling that since they didn't make the rules, the rules have nothing to do with them.
  12. Joseph Conrad Being a woman is a terribly difficult task, since it consists principally in dealing with men.
  13. Agatha Christie Any woman can fool a man if she wants to and if he's in love with her.
There you have 13 different views on women. Interestingly several had to do with age. I don't know why women obsess about age more than men do. But here's an ancient Chinese Proverb The woman who tells her age is either too young to have anything to lose or too old to have anything to gain. Hmmm...
