Quotable Women: Installment Two

To follow-up on last month’s post of memorable quotations taken from my page-a-day calendar (which thus far has an overrepresentation of thoughts from Marilyn Monroe and Coco Chanel), here are a few more gems:

  • “If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?” – Anonymous
  • “When women go wrong, men go right after them.” – Mae West
  • “People shop for a bathing suit with more care than they do for a husband or a wife. The rules are the same. Look for something you’ll feel comfortable wearing. Allow room for growth.” – Erma Bombeck
  • “Perhaps all human progress stems from the tension between two basic drives: to have just what everyone else has and to have what no one has.” – Judith Stone

And though I don’t want to disrespect the sentiment of International Women’s Day, I found it too ironic that of all days, I came across this definition in this month’s Alberta Venture magazine today:

  • glass cliff – an important project or senior job given to a woman with a high risk of failure (cf. glass ceiling, e.g. Rona Ambrose)
