Florence Nightingale Quote

That man and woman have an equality of duties and rights is accepted by woman even less than by man. Behind his destiny woman must annihilate herself, must be only his complement.

But if she has any destiny, any vocation of her own, she must renounce it, in nine cases out of ten.


Cassandra (1860)
