Women Quotes

I just love women, and who doesn’t, as long as she is not your wife (Vase flying…just missed my head)
Jokes aside, women are a totally different human, and I don’t quite believe in equality and such. Women just are special and they have always proven to be stronger than the man. And like someone said, there is not such thing as superiority complex, only inferiority complex, which is the root cause of all discrimination. I for one love and respect my women.

Here are some women quotes.. Some are quotes on women and some are by famous women.

    I was searching for some quotes for a multiple choice game that I was going to use for my annual regional meeting this summer. I am now confused – after reading hundreds and hundreds and going to many sites -you reference a quote from Nancy Reagan – “a woman is like a tea bag…” but, I have found on other quotes sites, that this was a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt. Is it customary that a famous quote, from a famous person, would be duplicated by the same? No less, both first wives? I find this very odd – even though the Reagan version has been changed slightly, and the meanings come off differently. Is this an error? I didn’t want to include quotes in my game, and then have this type of situation come back at me – I’d look rather foolish.
    Thank you

      Oh Dear! This is attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt. I am sorry, I must have typed too soon. I didn’t want to have to atribute the quote of a famous women to another famous women wrongly. You must have seen it being attributed to Nancy Reagan on some user submitted sites like thinkexist.com

      But here it was a Mistake.
      Sorry for the confusion and thank you so much for saving me from embarrassment…
