Famous Women quotes by Roxane Gay
#1. This is the woman who brought us the idea of living our best life, of becoming our most authentic selves. And yet. In 2015, Oprah Winfrey bought a 10 percent stake in Weight Watchers, an investment of $40 million. In one of her many commercials for the brand, she says, 'Let's make this the year of our best body.' The implication is, of course, that our current bodies are not our best bodies, not by a long shot. It is startling to realize that even Oprah, a woman in her early sixties, a billionaire and one of the most famous women in the world, isn't happy with herself, her body. This is how pervasive damaging cultural messages about unruly bodies are – that even as we age, no matter what material status we achieve, we cannot be satisfied or happy unless we are also thin. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Famous Women quotes by Ayn Rand
#2. Those who tell you that man is unable to perceive a reality undistorted by his senses, mean that they are unwilling to perceive a reality undistorted by their feelings. "Things as they are" are things as perceived by your mind; divorce them from reason and they become "things as perceived by your wishes. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Famous Women quotes by Ayn Rand
#3. Whoever claims the right to redistribute the wealth produced by others is claiming the right to treat human beings as chattel. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Famous Women quotes by Ayn Rand
#4. Happiness is not to be achieved at the command of emotional whims. Happiness is not the satisfaction of whatever irrational wishes you might blindly attempt to indulge. Happiness is a state of non-contradictory joy - a joy without penalty or guilt, a joy that does not clash with any of your values and does not work for your own destruction, not the joy of escaping from your mind, but of using your mind's fullest power, not the joy of faking reality, but of achieving values that are real, not the joy of a drunkard, but of a producer. Happiness is possible only to a rational man, the man who desires nothing but rational goals, seeks nothing but rational values and finds his joy in nothing but rational actions. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Famous Women quotes by Tawakkol Karman
#5. Peace does not mean just to stop wars, but also to stop oppression and injustice. #Quote by Tawakkol Karman
Famous Women quotes by Kate Meader
#6. She cracked a sexy smile with a side of condescension. "Jack, I'm not looking to know you."
No, she wasn't, unless you counted biblically. She was looking for the guy who indiscriminately dated and bedded famous women. A guy whose life could be reduced to adjectives, most of them unflattering. That guy. #Quote by Kate Meader

#7. I am a marvelous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man, I keep his house. #Quote by Zsa Zsa Gabor

Famous Women quotes by Milan Kundera
#14. Don't forget that not only was Socrates ugly but also that many famous women lovers did not distinguish themselves at all by their physical perfection. Aesthetic racism is almost always a sign of inexperience. Those who have not made their way far enough into the world of amorous delights judge women only by what can be seen. But those who really know women understand that the eye reveals only a minute fraction of what a woman can offer us #Quote by Milan Kundera
Famous Women quotes by Ayn Rand

#28. He grinned. It was a wicked grin, the kind that made the blood in Clary's veins run a little faster. "You want to go on a date?"
Caught off guard, she stammered. "A wh-what?"
"A date," Jace repeated. "Often 'a boring thing you have to memorize in history class,' but in this case, 'an offering of an evening of blisteringly white-hot romance with yours truly."
"Really?" Clary was not sure what to make of this. "Blisteringly white-hot?"
"It's me," said Jace. "Watching me play Scrabble is enough to make most women swoon. Imagine if I actually put in some effort. #Quote by Cassandra Clare

Famous Women quotes by Ron Currie Jr.
#30. All of which raises the question – your task, burden, privilege, call it what you like – a question which men and women, great and not-so of every color, creed and sexual persuasion have asked since they first had the language to do so, and probably before: Does Anything I Do Matter? #Quote by Ron Currie Jr.
Famous Women quotes by Shannon L. Alder

Famous Women quotes by Elif Batuman
#35. The ferry back to Budapest was full of reveling women in their fifties. Elbows linked, they danced, stomped, sang, and coughed. In the bar, they banged bottles against the counter. The few men in their party were slumped at the tables, heads buried in their arms. Only two were sitting upright, addressing a salami of durable appearance with a pocketknife. #Quote by Elif Batuman
Famous Women quotes by Ryan Cabrera
#36. Baseball is a red-blooded sport for red-blooded men. It's no pink tea, and mollycoddles had better stay out. #Quote by Ryan Cabrera
Famous Women quotes by Rose Macaulay
#37. We may say that all ages are dangerous to all people, in this dangerous life we live. But the thirties are a specially dangerous time for women. They have outlived the shyness and restraints of girlhood, and not attained to the caution and discretion of middle age. They are reckless, and consciously or unconsciously on the lookout for adventure. They see ahead of them the end of youth, and that quickens their pace. #Quote by Rose Macaulay
Famous Women quotes by Eugene H. Peterson

Famous Women quotes by Dorothy Richardson
#41. No future life could heal the degradation of having been a woman. Religion in the world had nothing but insults for women. #Quote by Dorothy Richardson
Famous Women quotes by Michael Brewer
#42. Unfortunately, I predict we will see a lot more of this type of behavior (and worse) as our culture progresses beyond Anglo domination. Many white people are beginning to feel like their world is being taken from them, and it causes fear and outbursts of violence like this.

Except nothing is actually being taken away, it's just now being shared. It's what is referred to as privilege. Before, we (white people) could assume everything catered to us by default. Everything spoke our language. Everyone (that mattered) looked like us. Everything reflected our beliefs (well, the religious majority, anyways).

Now, that is not the case. We are actually having to share space with others. What we are seeing with acts of aggression at restaurants like this is a sort of only-child selfishness taken to the extreme. We've been privileged for a long time now, and we don't like to share.

There are many privilege axes beyond white. There is christian privilege, straight (heterosexual) privilege, and male privilege. If you are angered by the acceptance of things counter to how you live, but do no actual harm, then you are probably a victim of privilege.

[In response to women wearing hijabs being attacked at restaurants, November 2015] #Quote by Michael Brewer
Famous Women quotes by Joyce Shaughnessy
#43. After months of rumors, inference, and horrible miscalculations, the impossible had happened. The U.S. Pacific fleet lay twisted anad burning at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean in Honolulu. Had he been wrong about Japan not taking an offensive right now? God, he had thousands of men and women to think of, and he feared in his heart that it might not turn out the way he had seen it. He felt doomed, almost paralyzed by his gross miscalculation. He determined, however, that he would not let the word out about Pearl Harbor until he could meet with his American strategists and Philippine President Manuel Quezon. #Quote by Joyce Shaughnessy
Famous Women quotes by Noel Clarke
#44. After 'Kidulthood,' I was called in to a meeting and told that I didn't write women very well. I was very annoyed. #Quote by Noel Clarke
Famous Women quotes by Lundy Bancroft

Famous Women quotes by John Lanchester

once they had unreasonably decided that you were a person with whom they were not under any circumstances ever going to have sex. #Quote by John Lanchester
Famous Women quotes by Catherine Cullen
#47. Its history is an especially rich and intriguing one for women: the great salons of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries gave women an intellectual influence and freedom; in the nineteenth century, for the bohemian and the flâneuse pleasure and revolution were a seductive mix; in the mid-twentieth century, Paris spelled freedom for Simone de Beauvoir who set the standard for contemporary feminism in her exhilarating The Second Sex. #Quote by Catherine Cullen
Famous Women quotes by Jessica Valenti

Famous Women quotes by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
#49. Whether thus adorned she would have been beautiful or not, and what she must have been in her prosperity, may be imagined from the beauty remaining to her after so many hardships; for, as everyone knows, the beauty of some women has its times and its seasons, and is increased or diminished by chance causes; and naturally the emotions of the mind will heighten or impair it, though indeed more frequently they totally destroy it. #Quote by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
Famous Women quotes by Mario Vargas-Llosa
#50. I have a chest full of all the insults, villainies, and infamies a man is capable of withstanding ... If you become famous, you will have to go through that. #Quote by Mario Vargas-Llosa
Famous Women quotes by Barbara Pym
#51. If the two women feared that the coming of this date [their retirement] might give some clue to their ages, it was not an occasion for embarrassment because nobody else had been in the least interested, both of them having long ago reached ages beyond any kind of speculation. #Quote by Barbara Pym

Famous Women quotes by Amber Heard

Famous Women quotes by Michael Nutter
#55. I believe in the critical importance of participating in the political system - from voting to standing for election. It's both rewarding and necessary that men and women of good will and clear thinking engage in honest, open debate. #Quote by Michael Nutter

#56. Eighteen months after Netscape was created, and before it had made a dime, Netscape sold shares in itself to the public. On the first day of trading the price of those shares rose from $12 apiece to $48. Three months later it was at $140. It was one of the most successful share offerings in the history of the U.S. stock markets, and possibly the most famous. #Quote by Michael Lewis
