„When you see a woman who can go nowhere without a staff of admirers, it is not so much because they think she is beautiful, it is because she has told them they are handsome.“

The Man in The Apollo of Bellac: A Play in One Act, p. 12 (1954, as adapted by Maurice Valency).

„[It] is all about the African woman, her beauty and how she makes herself beautiful. An African woman is therefore not to be messed up with or looked down upon because she’s feminine. Even though she’s beautiful, she’s strong and has a sense of pride.“

—  Muma Gee Nigerian singer and songwriter 1978

„It is a common saying that the most beautiful woman in the world can only give what she has. This is entirely false. She gives exactly what the recipient thinks he has received; for imagination fixes the value of this sort of favour.“

—  Nicolas Chamfort French writer 1741 - 1794

On dit communément: la plus belle femme du monde ne peut donner que ce qu'elle a; ce qui est très faux: elle donne précisément ce qu'on croit recevoir, puisqu'en ce genre, c'est l'imagination qui fait le prix de ce qu'on reçoit.

„Her face is a map of the world
Is a map of the world
You can see she's a beautiful girl
She's a beautiful girl.“

—  KT Tunstall Scottish singer-songwriter and guitarist 1975

"Suddenly I See".
Eye to the Telescope (2004)
Kontext: Her face is a map of the world
Is a map of the world
You can see she's a beautiful girl
She's a beautiful girl.
And everything around her is a silver pool of light
The people who surround her feel the benefit of it —
It makes you calm
She holds you captivated in her palm.

„Think not that aught the fury can surpass
Of woman, when she feels that she is scorned.“

—  Francesco Berni Italian poet 1497 - 1535

Non crediate che sia maggiore sdegno,
Che quel di donna quando e dispregiata.
