Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “The women of today are in a fair way to dethrone the myth of femininity; they are beginning to affirm their independence in concrete ways; but they do not easily succeed in living completely the life of a human being.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “The monologue is her form of revenge. FLAUBERT.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “I don’t want to be just another blade of grass.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “It is old age, rather than death, that is to be contrasted with life. Old age is life’s parody, whereas death transforms life into a destiny: in a way it preserves it by giving it the absolute dimension. Death does away with time.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “One of the benefits that oppression secures for the oppressor is that the humblest among them feels superior.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “The most mediocre of males feels himself a demigod as compared with women.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Many things would be changed for Americans if they would only admit that there is ill-luck in this world and that misfortune is not a priori a crime.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “I love you, with a touch of tragedy and quite madly.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Few tasks are more like the torture of Sisyphus than housework, with its endless repetition: the clean becomes soiled, the soiled is made clean, over and over, day after day.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “The nearer I come to the end of my days, the more I am enabled to see that strange thing, a life, and to see it whole...”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Society, being codified by man, decrees that woman is inferior; she can do away with this inferiority only by destroying the male’s superiority.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Society cares about the individual only in so far as he is profitable. The young know this. Their anxiety as they enter in upon social life matches the anguish of the old as they are excluded from it.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Those interested in perpetuating present conditions are always in tears about the marvelous past that is about to disappear, without having so much as a smile for the young future.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “However gifted an individual is at the outset, if his or her talents cannot be developed because of his or her social condition, because of the surrounding circumstances, these talents will be still-born.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “The word love has by no means the same sense for both sexes, and this is one cause of the serious misunderstandings that divide them.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Capabilities are clearly manifested only when they have been realized.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Patience is one of those feminine qualities which have their origin in our oppression but should be preserved after our liberation.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “My life was hurrying, racing tragically toward its end. And yet at the same time it was dripping so slowly, so very slowly now, hour by hour, minute by minute. One always has to wait until the sugar melts, the memory dies, the wound scars over, the sun sets, the unhappiness lifts and fades away.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “It’s easy to pay with the blood of others.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “She offered her mouth to him, as if enchanted. A Persian princess, a little Indian, a fox, a morning glory, a lovely wisteria – it always pleased them when you told them they looked like something, like something else.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “To reject the notions of the eternal feminine, the black soul, or the Jewish character is not to deny that there are today Jews, blacks, or women: this denial is not a liberation for those concerned but an inauthentic flight.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “In truth, to go for a walk with one’s eyes open is enough to demonstrate that humanity is divided into two classes of individuals whose clothes, faces, bodies, smiles, gaits, interests, and occupations are manifestly different. Perhaps these differences are superficial, perhaps they are destined to disappear. What is certain is that right now they do most obviously exist.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “As long as there have been men and they have lived, they have all felt this tragic ambiguity of their condition, but as long as there have been philosophers and they have thought, most of them have tried to mask it.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Woman has ovaries and a uterus; such are the particular conditions that lock her in her subjectivity; some even say she thinks with her hormones. Man vainly forgets that his anatomy also contains hormones and testicles. He grasps his body as a direct and normal link with the world that he believes he apprehends in all objectivity, whereas he considers woman’s body an obstacle, a prison, burdened by everything that particularizes it.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “The whole world was nothing but an exile with no hope of a return.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “When Goya was 80 he drew an ancient man propped on two sticks, with a great mass of white hair and beard all over his face, and the inscription, “I am still learning.””
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “To protest in the name of morality against ‘excesses’ or ‘abuses’ is an error which hints on active complicity. There are no ‘abuses’ or ‘excesses’ here, simpily an all-pervasive system.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “The prostitute is the sum of all types of feminine slavery at once.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “All around me the world lies like an immense hypothesis that I no longer verify.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “A writer is hoisted up onto a pedestal only to scrutinize him more closely and conclude that it was a mistake to put him up there in the first place.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “If so few female geniuses are found in history, it is because society denies them any means of expression.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “The American woman’s inequality with men is proved by her defiant attitude.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Old age was growing inside me. It kept catching my eye from the depths of the mirror. I was paralyzed sometimes as I saw it making its way toward me so steadily when nothing inside me was ready for it.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Love and action always imply a failure, but this failure must not keep us from loving and acting. For we have not only to establish what our situation is, we have to choose it in the very heart of its ambiguity.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “The man most sympathetic to women never knows her concrete situation fully. So there is no good reason to believe men when they try to defend privileges whose scope they cannot even fathom.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Youth and what the Italians so prettily call stamina. The vigor, the fire, that enables you to love and create. When you’ve lost that, you’ve lost everything.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “The arrogance of some Christians would close heaven to them if, to their misfortune, it existed.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “The passionate man seeks possession; he seeks to attain being. The failure and the hell which he creates for himself have been described often enough. He causes certain rare treasures to appear in the world, but he also.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Simonides of Amorgos says, “Women are the greatest evil God ever created: if they sometimes seem useful, they soon change into trouble for their masters.” For Hipponax: “There are but two days in life when your wife brings you joy: her wedding day and her funeral.”

Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Vengeance is pointless, but certain men do not have a place in the world we sought to construct.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “History is a great cemetery: men, deeds, ideas are always dying as soon as they are born.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “It is not in giving life but in risking life that man is raised above the animal; that is why superiority has been accorded in humanity not to the sex that brings forth but to that which kills.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “Even if one is neither vain nor self-obsessed, it is so extraordinary to be oneself – exactly oneself and no one else – and so unique, that it seems natural that one should also be unique for someone else.”
Simone de Beauvoir Quote: “You have never had any confidence in him. And if he has no confidence in himself it is because he sees himself through your eyes.”
