‘O, Bathsheba – this is woman’s folly!’

She fired up at once. ‘You are taking too much upon yourself !’ she said vehemently. ‘Everybody is upon me – everybody. It is unmanly to attack a woman so! I have noboody in the world to fight my battles for me; but no mercy is shown. Yet if a thousand of you sneer and say things against me, I will not be put down!’

  • Thomas Hardy – Far from the Madding Crowd
