Fay Weldon Quote: “People hear what they want and expect to hear, not what is said.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “The prophets of doom, in my experience, are generally ignored and usually right.”

Fay Weldon Quote: “Fiction stretches our sensibilities and our understanding, as mere information never can.”

Fay Weldon Quote: “If you wake up in the morning with a great sense of the things that have to be done in the day in order to get through to the next day, you lose the sense of the day as any kind of end in itself.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “Man seems not so much wicked as frail, unable to face pain, trouble and growing old. A good woman knows that nature is her enemy. Look at what it does to her.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “One friend dies and we remain indifferent; another dies, perhaps less intimate, and we see ourselves as dead, and weep, mourn, tear our hair or find ourselves caught up in the madness of the wake, competing with others as to who was closest, now suffers most.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “No one seemed able to look at themselves, coolly, from the outside. Their reality was all that could be seen in the light cast ahead by their own wishful thinking.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “Women have always tried to make themselves attractive to men, and you’re not going to change a thing like that in a hurry. Look around you. All the women nicely groomed and attractive and good-looking, and the men no better than fat slugs, for the most part, or skinny runts. Unshaved and smelly as often as not. They get away with everything, men. They can do every disgusting thing they like and no one ever says a thing.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “We discuss things, rather than ideas; we exchange information, not theories; we keep ourselves steady by thinking about the particular. The general is frightening.”

Fay Weldon Quote: “People fail you, children disappoint you, thieves break in, moths corrupt, but an Order of the British Empire goes on for ever.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “The desire for self-expression afflicts people when they feel there is something of themselves which is not getting through to the outside world.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “We make tactless remarks because we wish to hurt, break our legs because we do not wish to walk, marry the wrong man because we cannot let ourselves be happy, board the wrong train because we would prefer not to reach the destination.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “What makes women happy? Nothing, for more than ten minutes at a time, so stop worrying.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “A woman has all too much substance in a man’s eyes at the best of times. That is why men like women to be slim. Her lack of flesh negates her. The less of her there is, the less notice he need take of her. The more like a male she appears to be, the safer he feels.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “Peel away the wife, the mother, find the woman within, and there the she devil is.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “There is probably an innate masochism in a lot of women that ends up disappointed if men don’t ill-treat them.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “So treasure your moments of happiness, the glimpses you see of truth, the nights you’ve been loved. That’s all you’ve got.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “Widows tend either to fade away when husbands die, committing emotional suttee, or else find that a new life burgeons. Here in Christchurch, a lot of burgeoning goes on.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “Words are not simple things: they take unto themselves, as they have through time, power and meaning...”
Fay Weldon Quote: “All mothers love their own children as best they can, according to their temperament and circumstances, and all mothers should have done better, in their children’s eyes, when the going gets tough for the children.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “I am not cynical. I am just old. I know what is going to happen next.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “You will find that women who are pregnant often don’t want to be and women who aren’t desperately envy those who are. Labour wards are always full of very punitive people.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “I like the dry-cleaners. I like the sense of refreshment and renewal. I like the way dirty old torn clothes are dumped, to be returned clean and wholesome in their slippery transparent cases. Better than confesssion any day. Here there is a true sense of rebirth, redemption, salvation.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “I was seduced by secrets, which are to true love as artificial sweetener is to sugar, calorie-free but in the long run carcinogenic, not the real thing, and only a peculiar aftertaste in the mouth to tell you so, to warn you.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “One must be careful with words. Words turn probabilities into facts and by sheer force of definition translate tendencies into habits.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “We shelter children for a time; we live side by side with men; and that is all. We owe them nothing, and are owed nothing. I think we owe our friends more, especially our female friends.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “To the happy all things come: happiness can even bring the dead back to life. It is our resentments, our dreariness, our hate and envy, unrecognized by us, which keeps us miserable. Yet these things are in our heads, not out of our hands; we own them. We can throw them out if we choose.”
Fay Weldon Quote: “If you put a woman in a man’s position, she will be more efficient, but no more kind.”

Fay Weldon Quote: “Idle, profligate, ingrate. No one decent could ever want him.”
