As part of preparing a lecture,I needed to find some examples of aphorisms for the class. But looking at lists of aphorisms on the web, I quickly determined that most of them were by men. (Will Rogers “Diplomacy is the art of saying ‘Nice Doggie’ until you can find a rock.” Abraham Maslow “If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.”) Great, right? But where are the women
Here are some excellent aphorisms by women:
The President of today is the postage stamp of tomorrow. — Gracie Allen
No woman gets an orgasm from shining the kitchen floor. — Betty Friedan,
When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I’ve never tried before. — Mae West
