Quote Bullet

Is suffering so very serious? I have come to doubt it. It may be quite childish, a sort of undignified pastime -- I'm referring to the kind of suffering a man inflicts on a woman or a woman on a man. It's extremely painful. I agree that it's hardly bearable. But I very much fear that this sort of pain deserves no consideration at all. It's no more worthy of respect than old age or illness.
~ Sidonie Gabrielle Colette - [Suffering]

Quote Bullet

It's nothing to be born ugly. Sensibly, the ugly woman comes to terms with her ugliness and exploits it as a grace of nature. To become ugly means the beginning of a calamity, self-willed most of the time.

Quote Bullet

Researchers, with science as their authority, will be able to cut [Animals] up, alive, into small pieces, drop them from a great height to see if they are shattered by the fall, or deprive them of sleep for sixteen days and nights continuously for the purposes of an iniquitous monograph... ''Animal trust, undeserved faith, when at last will you turn away from us? Shall we never tire of deceiving, betraying, tormenting animals before they cease to trust us?''
~ Sidonie Gabrielle Colette - [Science and Scientists]

Quote Bullet

Among all the modernized aspects of the most luxurious of industries, the model, a vestige of voluptuous barbarianism, is like some plunder-laden prey. She is the object of unbridled regard, a living bait, the passive realization of an ideal. No other female occupation contains such potent impulses to moral disintegration as this one, applying as it does the outward signs of riches to a poor and beautiful girl.
~ Sidonie Gabrielle Colette - [Models and Modeling]

Quote Bullet

But just as delicate fare does not stop you from craving for saveloys, so tried and exquisite friendship does not take away your taste for something new and dubious.
~ Sidonie Gabrielle Colette - [Friends and Friendship]

Quote Bullet

My true friends have always given me that supreme proof of devotion, a spontaneous aversion for the man I loved.
~ Sidonie Gabrielle Colette - [Friends and Friendship]

There is no need to waste pity on young girls who are having their moments of disillusionment, for in another moment they will recover their illusion.
