We're all aware of some degree of difference in attitudes, thinking and behaviors between men and women. Depending on how they are manifested, these differences can delight, puzzle, frustrate, and disappoint us.
In Gender Quotes, Dianne Gardner – experienced in healthcare upper management, leadership development, and executive coaching -- presents a collection of quotes that illustrate, with insight and humor, the contrasts between the genders.
These quotes, from well-noted men and women, deal with the topics of masculinity; femininity; relationships; love; living life; family and parenting; learning and personal growth; work and achievement; and more.
Here are some examples:
‘No one will ever win the battle of the sexes; there’s too much fraternizing with the enemy.’…Henry Kissinger.
‘What is most beautiful in virile men is something feminine; what is most beautiful in feminine women is something masculine’ …Susan Sontag.
’The trouble with some women is that they get all excited about nothing – and then marry him.’…Cher
‘Keep your eyes open before marriage and half-shut afterwards.’
This book of pithy, humorous, and insightful quotes is well worth the read and reflections.
