Quotes / Woman Scorned

Go To

A tigress robb'd of young, a lioness,
Or any interesting beast of prey,
Are similes at hand for the distress
Of ladies who can not have their own way;
But though my turn will not be served with less,
These don't express one half what I should say:
For what is stealing young ones, few or many,
To cutting short their hopes of having any?
Lord Byron, Don Juan, V.132.1-8

Baby, I have no story to be told,
But I heard one on you, and it's gonna make your head burn.
Think of me in the depths of your despair,
Making a home down there as mine sure won't be shared.
Adele, Rolling In The Deep.

Asuka, Evangelion 303

"But the man who commits adultery is an utter fool, for he destroys himself. He will be wounded and disgraced. His shame will never be erased. For the woman's jealous husband will be furious, and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge. He will accept no compensation, nor be satisfied with a payoff of any size."
The Bible, Proverbs 6:32-35, New Living Translation

Batgirl: You travelled five thousand miles. You hooked up with a loose cannon—possibly psychotic—vigilante who doesn't place much value on life...and a world class felon. You stressed my network to the max. You faced the world's deadliest martial artist. All to get back at a guy who didn't call you the next day. Was it worth it?
Black Canary: Yeah, it was.

"I'm offering you a choice. If you take me, I'll go easy on you in the ring. If you don't—" She gave Kara as venomous a look as she'd ever seen, and the heroine replayed all the cliches she'd heard about a woman scorned.

Deputy Charlie: And then she'll tear up Harry.
