Quotes about women

Before writing more stories about women I want to introduce to you quotes below. They show my understanding of role of women in our world.

A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Women have always been the strong ones of the world. The men are always seeking from women a little pillow to put their heads down on. They are always longing for the mother who held them as infants.

Coco Chanel

Man does not control his own fate. The women in his life do that for him.

Groucho Marx

The age of a woman doesn’t mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ah, women. They make the highs higher and the lows more frequent.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.

Timothy Leary

God gave women intuition and femininity. Used properly, the combination easily jumbles the brain of any man I’ve ever met.

Gustav Klimt.

Let’s start with a short excerpt from Wikipedia:

“In 2006, the 1907 portrait, Adele Bloch-Bauer I, was purchased for the Neue Galerie New York by Ronald Lauder reportedly for US $135 million, surpassing Picasso‘s 1905 Boy With a Pipe (sold May 5, 2004 for $104 million), as the highest reported price ever paid for a painting.

On August 7, 2006, Christie’s auction house announced it was handling the sale of the remaining four works by Klimt that were recovered by Maria Altmann and her co-heirs after their long legal battle against Austria… The portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer II was sold at auction in November 2006 for $88 million, the third-highest priced piece of art at auction at the time.[24] The Apple Tree I (ca. 1912) sold for $33 million, Birch Forest (1903) sold for $40.3 million,[25] and Houses in Unterach on Lake Atter (1916) sold for $31 million.”

I wanted to introduce to you Gustav Klimt several weeks ago but only today I found a website that I like very much. It tells about events when Klimt lived, about his life and allows you to look at his paintings (by clicking on each of them).

Please explore the website HERE.

Now, there were two portraits of Adele Bloch-Bauer by Klimt. Who was she?

You can find an answer HERE.

 

Photos of Sandy by Marek Palacka.

Many of you already saw photos of beautiful Slovakian girls made by Marek Palacka.

If you missed them you can see them at  PHOTOS OF MAREK PALACKA.

In that post I asked to tell me who of the girls was the best. Several people answered that it was impossible to answer, that all of them were very attractive.

This time I chose 5 photos that Marek shared with the Google Photo Community. There is only name Sandy on all photos.

I’d like to ask two questions:

A. Is this the same girl on all photos?

B. What photo you like most?

Here are the photos:

Photos of Marek Palacka.

Several months ago I noticed that Marek Palacka often shares with the Google Photo Community photos of beautiful girls.

55 years ago (before marriage) I believed that I was an expert on women’s beauty. Today I am not so sure about it but I pinned several portraits by Marek and ignored others. Below you’ll find my pins. Please let me know what girl you find the most attractive.
