George Bernard Shaw Quote

Women are not angels. They are as foolish as men in many ways; but they have had to devote themselves to life whilst men have had to devote themselves to death; and that makes a vital difference in male and female religion. Women have been forced to fear whilst men have been forced to dare: the heroism of a woman is to nurse and protect life, and of a man to destroy it and court death.


The Intelligent Woman's Guide to Socialism and Capitalism, Chapter 82 (1928)
