Very few adult people have done all the dirty things they'd like to have done. The ones I've seen are chock-a-block with regret for the lives they haven't led, the sheilas they haven't raped, the tills they haven't robbed, the murders they haven't done, the sex they haven't had. David Ireland, The Chantic Bird, 1968[On the women of Victoria]Women, all the world over, are entitled to everything that chivalry can give them. They should sit while men stand. They should be served while men wait. Men should be silent while they speak. They should be praised - even without desert. They should be courted - even when having neither wit nor beauty. They should be worshipped - even without love. They should be kept harmless while men suffer. They should be kept warm while men are cold. They should be kept safe while men are in danger. They should be enabled to live while men die in their defence. All this chivalry should do for women, and should do as a matter of course. But there is a reason for this deference. One human being does not render all these services to another - who cannot be more than his equal before God - without a cause. A man will serve a woman, will suffer for her - if it comes to that will die for her - because she is weaker than he and needs protection. Let her show herself to be as strong, let her prove by her prowess and hardihood that the old idea of her comparative weakness has been an error from the beginning, and the very idea of chivalry, though it may live for awhile by the strength of custom, must perish and die out of men's hearts. Anthony Trollope, Australia and New Zealand, 1873I don't know anything about them women. I s'spose they're bad, but I don't suppose they're worse than men has made them. Henry Lawson, `Send Round the Hat', Send Round the Hat, 1907You know what they say: behind every successful man there's a woman. Behind every successful woman there's usually a divorce. Alma De Groen, Vocations, 1983It may sound disloyal to my sex, yet it is a common truth; show me a woman in power, and I will show you a despot. Barbara Baynton, `The Indignity of Domestic Service', 1911, in Krimmer and Lawson, eds, The Portable Barbara Baynton, 1980Women is strange. But bli'me! So is men! CJ Dennis, `A Woman's Way', Rose of Spadgers, 1924I am one of the few men honest enough to say they do not understand women. Sir Robert Menzies, Sydney Morning Herald, 25 April 1964`Ar, women,' said Dag. `They're like choclates. You don't miss 'em if they're not there, but if they're there you want to be gutsing them all the time.' Geoffrey Dutton, Andy, 1968In this noisome little colony,...
