Quotes about Men & Women

Updated on February 22, 2014

Battle of the Sexes

It's a known fact that since the beginning of time men and women have disagreed on many different topics. Let's face it, men and women have very different points of view on many of the same subjects. Research studies have shown that the differences in the brains of men and women really do influence how they think.

A few of the major areas that men and women differ in their feelings and thoughts include: relationships, response to stress, communication, and emotions. Women generally have a larger limbic system, allowing them to be more in touch with their feelings and better able to express them. Men are stronger with left brain activities and tend to solve problems from a task oriented perspective.

Throughout the ages these differences have made for many jokes, anecdotes, and quotes. Men and women from all walks of life can relate to gender quotes....
