Wildly Witty Women

by Raelene Gorlinsky

I love browsing books of quotes. So I recently picked up Out of the Mouths of Babes: Quips and Quotes from Wildly Witty Women by Autumn Stephens.

"If he ain't willin' to strap on the rubber bridle, then I ain't willin' to ride."
- Calamity Wronsky & Belle Bendall (referring to condoms)

"I do not wish [women] to have power over men, but over themselves."
- Mary Wollstonecraft

"We still think of a powerful man as a born leader, and a powerful woman as an anomaly."
- Margaret Atwood

"Girls got balls. They're just a little higher up, that's all."
- Joan Jett

"For every hero in this world, there's at least one shero."

If you never want to see a man again - tell him you love him!
If you want him to trip up on the way out, tell him you lied about being on the pill and you're probably pregnant.
