"If you knew what was going to happen, if you knew everything that was going to happen next—if you knew in advance the consequences of your own actions—you'd be doomed. You'd be ruined as God. You'd be a stone. You'd never eat or drink or laugh or get out of bed in the morning. You'd never love anyone, ever again. You'd never dare to."
"The truth is, I often like women. I like their unconventionality. I like their completeness. I like their anonymity."
"I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naïve or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman."
"I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman."
"The history of men's opposition to women's emancipation is more interesting perhaps than the story of that emancipation itself."
"Vanity is becoming a nuisance, I can see why women give it up, eventually. But I'm not ready for that yet."
"I hope she'll be a fool -- that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool."
"And if he had judged her harshly? If her life were a simple rosary of hours, her life simple and strange as a bird's life, gay in the morning, restless all day, tired at sundown? Her heart simple and willful as a bird's heart?"
"Modern paintings are like women, you'll never enjoy them if you try to understand them."
"As a woman I have no country. As a woman I want no country. As a woman, my country is the whole world."
