Henry Louis Mencken quotes
A nun, at best, is only half a woman, just as a priest is only half a man.
Victor Hugo quotes
The convent, which belongs to the West as it does to the East, to antiquity as it does to the present time, to Buddhism and Muhammadanism as it does to Christianity, is one of the optical devices whereby man gains a glimpse of infinity.
Ambrose Bierce quotes
Convent: A place of retirement for women who wish for leisure to meditate upon the sin of idleness.
