Mary Wollstonecraft
Quotations


Taught from infancy that beauty is woman's sceptre, the mind shapes itself to the body, and roaming round its gilt cage, only seeks to adorn its prison.

Independence I have long considered as the grand blessing of life, the basis of every virtue; and independence I will ever secure by contracting my wants, though I were to live on a barren heath.

Children, I grant, should be innocent; but when the epithet is applied to men, or women, it is but a civil term for weakness.
