Men and Women...

Karl Kraus,
"At some time in the world there must have been an immaculate conception of voluptuousness!"

"He forced her to do her bidding."
(Karl Kraus, Half-Truths and
One-and-a-Half-Truths :103, 106)

"After a quarrel between a man and a woman, one suffers most at the idea of having hurt the other, while the other suffers most at the idea of not having hurt the other enough, from which follow the tears, sobs and distracted mien through which the heart of the other is to be made heavy even after the quarrel is over."
(Human, All Too Human: A Book for Free Spirits (Cambridge U. Press: 1996) Translated by R.J. Hollingdale :155-156)

By the way, I've always tended to agree with Kraus much more than Nietzsche.
