This is page 2 of 4 of Misogynistic quotes and sayings. Please note that we do not condone or agree with any of these sexist quotes, they are presented here solely for historical purposes to illustrated just how much attitudes have changed and how much farther we still have to go until we get rid of the old sexist attitudes of the past. Many of these quotes about women represent an old and outdated view of women that has no place in our modern society.
Can't live with them, or without them. -- Aristophanes, Lysistrata, 411 B.C. I bet you had no idea that this saying was as old as this.
In neurasthenia or insanity, "cherchez la femme" - woman is at the bottom of most troubles. -- Sir William Osler (1950). I am not sure if Sir Osler was married but if he was, one suspects that his wife might have had a thing to say about what a pleasure it was to live with a woman hater like him. Perhaps it is more accurate to say that people with attitudes like Sir Osler are the root of the problem.
Frailty, thy name is woman! -- William Shakespeare. The great Bard is known as an accurate portrayer of human nature, but in fact any of his plays contain some very objectionable comments and descriptions of women and Jews.
