Ernestine Rose Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Ernestine Rose from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

We have hardly an adequate idea how all-powerful law
is in forming public opinion,
in giving tone and character to the mass of society.
- Ernestine Rose

she is? Then see what the sickly taste and perverted
judgment of man now admires in woman.
- Ernestine Rose

Much is said about the burdens and responsibilities of married men.
Responsibilities indeed there are, if they but felt them;
but as to burdens what are they?
- Ernestine Rose

From the cradle to the grave she is subject to the
power and control of man.
Father, guardian, or husband, one conveys her like
some piece of merchandise over to the other.
- Ernestine Rose

 

The mass of the people commence life with no other
capital than the union of head,

The few bright meteors in man's intellectual horizon
could well be matched by women,
were she allowed to occupy the same elevated position.
- Ernestine Rose

Fathers like to have children good-natured,
well-behaved, and comfortable, but how to put them
in that desirable condition is out of their philosophy.
- Ernestine Rose

It is an interesting and demonstrable fact,
that all children are atheists and were religion not
inculcated into their minds,
they would remain so.
- Ernestine Rose

Away with that folly that her rights would be detrimental to her character -
that if she were recognized as the equal to a man she
would cease to be a woman!
- Ernestine Rose

There is no reason against woman's elevation,
but prejudices.
- Ernestine Rose

Blind submission in women is considered a virtue,
while submission to wrong is itself wrong,
and resistance to wrong is virtue alike in women as in man.
- Ernestine Rose

If they are unsuccessful in married life,
who suffers more the bitter consequences of poverty
than the wife? But if successful,
she has not a dollar to call her own.
- Ernestine Rose

In case of separation, why should the children be taken
from the protecting care of the mother? Who has a better
right to them than she? How much do fathers generally
do toward bringing them up?
- Ernestine Rose

But say some, would you expose woman to the contact of rough,
rude, drinking, swearing, fighting men at the ballot
box? What a humiliating confession lies in this plea
for keeping woman in the background!
- Ernestine Rose

Cultivate the frontal portion of her brain as much
as that of man is cultivated,
and she will stand his equal at least.
Even now, where her mind has been called out at all,
her intellect is as bright, as capacious,
and as powerful as his.
- Ernestine Rose

Again, I shall be told that the law presumes the husband to be kind,
affectionate, and ready to provide for and protect his wife.
But what right, I ask, has the law to presume at all on the subject?
- Ernestine Rose

In the laws of the land, she has no rights;
in government she has no voice.
And in spite of another principle recognized in this Republic,
namely, that 'taxation without representation is tyranny,'
she is taxed without being represented.
- Ernestine Rose

The main cause is a pernicious falsehood propagated against her being,
namely that she is inferior by her nature.
Inferior in what? What has man ever done that woman,
under the same advantages could not do?
- Ernestine Rose

Carry out the republican principle of universal suffrage,
or strike it from your banners and substitute 'Freedom
and Power to one half of society,
and Submission and Slavery to the other.'
- Ernestine Rose

It is high time to compel man by the might of right
to give woman her political,
legal and social rights.
She will find her own sphere in accordance with her capacities,
powers and tastes; and yet she will be woman still.
- Ernestine Rose

I know that some endeavor to throw the mantle of romance
over the subject and treat woman like some ideal existence,
not liable to the ills of life.
Let those deal in fancy who have nothing better to deal in;
we have to do with sober,
sad realities, with stubborn facts.
- Ernestine Rose

or in other words, he feeds, clothes and shelters her!

fully realize the degradation contained in that idea.
- Ernestine Rose

and we become aware of our oneness.
This is the everlasting and triumphant mystical tradition,
hardly altered by differences of clime or creed.
- William James

Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition.
The immature mind often mistakes one for the other,
or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy -
in fact, they're almost incompatible;
one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.
Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
- Robert Heinlein

40s shouldn't play tennis.
I heeded his advice carefully and could hardly wait
until I reached 50 to start again.

until you try to communicate with someone with a different paradigm.
