On Women

"What, Sir, would the people of the earth be without woman?  They would be scarce, sir, almighty scarce." - Mark Twain

"After all these years, I see that I was mistaken about Eve in the beginning; it is better to live outside the Garden with her than inside it without her." - Mark Twain, Adam's Diary

"Women cannot receive even the most palpably judicious suggestion without arguing it; that is, married women." - Mark Twain

"There is no such thing as an ugly woman." - Vincent Van Gogh

"Some men know that a light touch of the tongue, running from a woman's toes to her ears, lingering in the softest way possible in various places in between, given often enough and sincerely enough, would add immeasurably to world peace." - Marianne Williamson

"The average woman would rather have beauty than brains, because the average man can see better than he can think." - Unknown

"A woman  can say more in a sigh than a man can say in a sermon." - Arnold Haultain

"A pessimist is a man who thinks all women are bad.  An optimist is a man who hopes they are." - Chauncey Mitchell Depew

"Ah, women.  They make the highs higher and the lows more frequent." - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

"I have an idea that the term 'weaker sex' was coined by some woman to disarm some man she was prepared to overwhelm." - Ogden Nash

"They may talk of a comet, or a burning mountain, or some such bagatelle; but to me a modest woman, dressed out in all her finery, is the most tremendous object of the whole creation." - Oliver Goldsmith

"If women didn't exist, all the money in the world would have no meaning." - Aristotle Onassis

"I'd much rather be a woman than a man.  Women can cry, they can wear cute clothes, and they're the first to be rescued off sinking ships." - Gilda Radner

"If a girl looks swell when she meets you, who gives a damn if she's late?  Nobody." - J.D. Salinger

"The supply of good women far exceeds that of the men who deserve them." - Robert Graves

"Behind every great woman is a guy looking at her ass." - Unknown

"Women speak two languages - one of which is verbal." - William Shakespeare

And with all that being said, I got nuthin' useful to add.  Enjoy the diversity of quoted thoughts about the universe's most complex and beautiful of its creations.
