To be successful, a woman has to be much better at her job than a man.
To live anywhere in the world today and be against equality because of race or color is like living in Alaska and being against snow.
These men ask for just the same thing, fairness, and fairness only. This, so far as in my power, they, and all others, shall have.
Real equality is immensely difficult to achieve, it needs continual revision and monitoring of distributions. And it does not provide buffers between members, so they are continually colliding or frustrating each other.
Stewardesses are still paid so little that in many cases, new hires qualify for food stamps.
When I was little I thought, isn’t it nice that everybody celebrates on my birthday? Because it’s July 4th.
About astrology and palmistry: they are good because they make people vivid and full of possibilities. They are communism at its best. Everybody has a birthday and almost everybody has a palm.
All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much.
Being seventy is not a sin.
Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new.
Old age is the most unexpected of all the things that can happen to a man.
I want to get old gracefully. I want to have good posture, I want to be healthy and be an example to my children.
I will never be an old man. To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am.
Old age is like a plane flying through a storm. Once you’re aboard, there’s nothing you can do.
I’m not interested in age. People who tell me their age are silly. You’re as old as you feel.
Henri Frederic Amiel
When women go wrong, men go right after them.
Whether women are better than men I cannot say – but I can say they are certainly no worse.
Why is it men are permitted to be obsessed about their work, but women are only permitted to be obsessed about men?
Wives are young men’s mistresses, companions for middle age, and old men’s nurses.
Women always excel men in that sort of wisdom which comes from experience. To be a woman is in itself a terrible experience.
H. L. Mencken
Someone who thinks the world is always cheating him is right. He is missing that wonderful feeling of trust in someone or something.
The more you trust your intuition, the more empowered you become, the stronger you become, and the happier you become.
Trust no friend without faults, and love a woman, but no angel.
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
Trusting your individual uniqueness challenges you to lay yourself open.
