Alas! A woman that attempts the pen
Such an intruder on the rights of men

To write, or read, or think, or to enquire
wou’d cloud our beauty, and exaust our time,
And interrupt the Conquests of our Prime

Anne Finch, 1714

In response to the male dominate field of poetry at the time

(via jaz0ful)

Today a new sun rises for me; everything lives, everything is animated, everything seems to speak to me of my passion, everything invites me to cherish it.
Ninon de Lenclos (via itsquoted)
