Name:Veronica Franco

From Capitolo 20. - Franco writes of unrequited love:

"So though I lack confidence in my own gifts,
considering that you are a fine and famous man,
I don't abandon hope entirely.
Rather, even at the height of my bitterness,
flattering myself, I persist in expecting
shelter and refuge from you for my pain,
for my sorrow could bring you great honour,
if you are quick to come to my aid,
even as I complain about you to yourself.
If not, you'll see me, in misery, die..."

~Veronica Franco, 1546 - 1591~

"When we too are armed and trained, we can convince men that we have hands, feet, and a heart like yours; and although we may be delicate and soft, some men who are delicate are also strong; and others, coarse and harsh, are cowards. Women have not yet realized this, for if they should decide to do so, they would be able to fight you until death; and to prove that I speak the truth, amongst so many women, I will be the first to act, setting an example for them to follow." -- Veronica Franco, 1546 - 1591
