R
The most mediocre of males feels himself a demigod as compared with women.
A
If you haven't been happy very young, you can still be happy later on, but it's much harder. You need more luck.
N
To catch a husband is an art; to hold him is a job.
K
On the day when it will be possible for woman to love not in her weakness but in strength, not to escape herself but to find herself, not to abase herself but to assert herself -- on that day love will become for her, as for man, a source of life . . .
