Simone De Beauvoir

Simone De Beauvoir

French writer and philosopher
It is not in giving life but in risking life that man is raised above the animal; that is why superiority has been accorded in humanity not to the sex that brings forth but to that which kills.More Simone De Beauvoir quotes [09/03/2011 02:09:11]
A man attaches himself to woman -- not to enjoy her, but to enjoy himself.More Simone De Beauvoir quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The curse which lies upon marriage is that too often the individuals are joined in their weakness rather than in their strength -each asking from the other instead of finding pleasure in giving. It is even more deceptive to dream of gaining through the child a plenitude, a warmth, a value, which one is unable to create for oneself; the child brings joy only to the woman who is capable of disinterestedly desiring the happiness of another, to one who without being wrapped up in self seeks to transcend her own existence.More Simone De Beauvoir quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Even if one is neither vain nor self-obsessed, it is so extraordinary to be oneself - exactly oneself and no one else - and so unique, that it seems natural that one should also be unique for someone else.More Simone De Beauvoir quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Weakness' is weakness only in light of the aims man sets for himself, the instruments at his disposal and the laws he imposes.More Simone De Beauvoir quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
