2. "When my generation of women walked away from the kitchen we were escorted down that path by a profiteering industry that knew a tired, vulnerable marketing target when they saw it. "Hey, ladies," it said to us, "go ahead, get liberated. We'll take care of dinner." They threw open the door and we walked into a nutritional crisis and genuinely toxic food supply. If you think toxic is an exaggeration, read the package directions for handling raw chicken from a CAFO. We came a long way, baby, into bad eating habits and collaterally impaired family dynamics. No matter what else we do or believe, food remains at the center of every culture. Ours now runs on empty calories."
Author: Barbara Kingsolver

8. "When ladies as young, and good, and beautiful as you are," replied the girl steadily, "give away your hearts, love will carry you all lengths--even such as you, who have home, friends, other admireres, everything to fill them. When such as I, who have no certain roof but the coffin-lid, and no friend in sickness or death but the hospital nurse, set our rotten hearts on any man, and let him fill the place that has been a blank through all our wretched lives, who can hope to cure us? Pity us, lady--pity us for having only one feeling of the woman left, and for having that turned, by a heavy judgment, from a comfort and a pride, into a new means of violence and suffering."
Author: Charles Dickens

11. "The people who hanged Christ never, to do them justice, accused him of being a bore - on the contrary, they thought him too dynamic to be safe. It has been left for later generations to muffle up that shattering personality and surround him with an atmosphere of tedium. We have efficiently pared the claws of the Lion of Judah, certified him "meek and mild" and recommended him as a fitting household pet for pale curates and pious old ladies."
Author: Dorothy L. Sayers

Je sais que ce baiser m'aurait accompagné partout et pendant longtemps, comme un souvenir radieux auquel me raccrocher dans les moments de solitude. Mais après tout, certains disent que les plus belles histoires d'amour sont celles qu'on n'a pas eu le temps de vivre. Peut-être alors que les baisers qu'on ne reçoit pas sont aussi les plus intenses."
Author: Guillaume Musso
13. "Nadie debería decir: "Yo puedo confiar" o "Yo no puedo confiar" hasta que sea dueño de la opción de confiar o no confiar."
Author: Idries Shah
14. "—La gente creerá que somos pareja. —Tímidamente le dije.—Que lo piensen. Cómo nadie nos conoce, entonces no le rendiremos cuentas a nadie.—Algunas jóvenes no dejan de mirarte, no las desilusiones.—Igual, algunos caballeros no te quitan los ojos de encima. —Miraba a su alrededor un tanto serio —Bueno, también se habrán dado cuenta que no soy de aquí.—No, no solo es eso. Es que la belleza de una flor exótica, no puede pasar desapercibida en medio de un campo silvestre. —Murmuró mirándome fijamente a los ojos.Esa frase y su manera de decirlo, la suavidad y la sensualidad en sus palabras me habían idiotizado. Si Loui seguía por ese camino que se había trazado intentando seducirme, en cualquier momento más pronto que tarde lograría que sucumbiera a él. Mis barreras estaban cayendo a sus pies, al igual que mi voluntad y pronto, ante él no sólo desnudaría mi alma sino también mi cuerpo."

15. "As for any society in Portsmouth, that could at all make amends for deficiencies at home, there were none within the circle of her father's and mother's acquaintance to afford her the smallest satisfaction: she saw nobody in whose favour she could wish to overcome her own shyness and reserve. The men appeared to her all coarse, the women all pert, everybody underbred; and she gave as little contentment as she received from introductions either to old or new acquaintance. The young ladies who approached her at first with some respect, in consideration of her coming from a baronet's family, were soon offended by what they termed "airs"; for, as she neither played on the pianoforte nor wore fine pelisses, they could, on farther observation, admit no right of superiority."
Author: Jane Austen

Author: Jane Austen
17. "The room was dull now, and meaningless, with the young ladies gone from it. They were both lovely, almost luminous. And Sarah was, she knew, as she slipped along the servants' corridor, and then up the stairs to the attic to hang her her new dress on the rail, just one of the many shadows that ebbed and tugged at the edges of the light."
Author: Jo Baker

Will replied with a grin.Halt looked at him and shook his head. 'Definitely the 'ladies,'' he said. 'There's no debate about the 'fighting.''Will shrugged. He knew there was an edginess to the girls' relationship and that it had something to do with him. Why that should be so was beyond him."
Author: John Flanagan

Hector asked Lee."It was not Ally's idea!" I cried."It wasn't!" super-power-eared Ally yelled from the open back window of Lee's Explorer. "It was Sadie's idea. I just was offering moral support.""Shut up, Ally!" Indy shouted out the open passenger side window."I will not shut up! I'm not taking the fall for this one!" Ally shouted back."
Author: Kristen Ashley
24. "Pero un tipo de libro que a casi nadie le gusta leer es un libro sobre leyes. Los libros sobre leyes son muy largos, muy aburridos y muy difíciles. Es una de las razones por las que muchos abogados ganan tanto dinero. El dinero es un incentivo —la palabra «incentivo» significa aquí «recompensa ofrecida para que hagas algo que no quieres hacer»— para leer libros largos, aburridos y difíciles."
Author: Lemony Snicket

Author: Lia Habel
26. "He's a young man, my own age or a little older, which is young for a man although not for a woman, as at my age a woman is an old maid but a man is not an old bachelor until he's fifty, and even then there's still hope for the ladies, as Mary Whitney used to say."
Author: Margaret Atwood
27. "Ladies, if you're single there is nothing wrong, sinful or wicked about desiring a husband, nothing. Anyone who would say otherwise is absolutely lying to you. God wired you for it, He built you for it. Men, there is nothing wrong, wicked, or evil about wanting a wife. I don't know when that happened, I don't, now listen I do think that you need to be content where you are today, alright, but listen I'm content with what Christ is doing in me today but I don't want to be who I am today, I'm hoping Christ will complete what He began.

It's okay, it's okay to want."

I spent my formative years at my aunt's at Huffington Manor. She held a daily salon, where a dozen noble ladies came to discuss all manner of philosophical topics, like how much they hated their husbands. I've never actually held a sword, but I can tie a mean corset and apply face paint like a gold-coin whore."
Author: Michael J. Sullivan

34. "By the nineteenth century, society had given up burning witches. Yet the sexual exploitation of children continued. In late-nineteenth-century Britain, for example, men who raped young girls were excused because they did it to cure venereal disease. There was a widely held belief that children would take "poisons" out of the body. In fact, leprosy, venereal disease, depression, and impotence were part of a wide range of maladies believed cured by having sex with the young. An English medical text of the time reads, "Breaking a maiden's seal is one of the best antidotes for one's ills. Cudgeling her unceasingly, until she swoons away, is a mighty remedy for man's depression. It cures all impotence."
Author: Patrick J. Carnes

42. "Ah yes," Gabe said, "Pinter is ever the gallant when it comes to the ladies. He wouldn't risk leaving us alone with poor Miss Lake, for the fear one of us might spirit her off to our lair.""Why?" Miss Lake asked, with a lift of her brow. "Do you three make a habit of spiriting women off?""Only on Tuesdays and Fridays," Masters said. "Seeing as how it's Wednesday, your safe.""Unless you're wearing a blue garter, madam," Gabe quipped. "On Wednesdays, Masters and I have a great fondness for blue garters. Are your gaters blue, Miss Lake?""Only on Mondays and Thursdays."

Author: Scott Anderson
