   Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations.  1989.
 
 
NUMBER:2012
AUTHOR:C. E. Bowman
QUOTATION:They talk about a woman’s sphere as though it had a limit;
There’s not a place in Earth or Heaven,
There’s not a task to mankind given,
There’s not a blessing or a woe,
There’s not a whispered yes or no,
There’s not a life, or death, or birth,
That has a feather’s weight or worth—
Without a woman in it.
ATTRIBUTION:C. E. BOWMAN, “The Sphere of Woman.”—Joseph M. Chapple, Heart Throbs in Prose and Verse, p. 343 (1905).

  A similar version:
        They talk about ‘a woman’s sphere’
        As though it has a limit;
        There’s not a spot on sea or shore,
        In sanctum, office, shop or store,
        Without a woman in it.

  Author unknown.—Jennie Day Haines, Sovereign Woman Versus Mere Man, p. 50 (1905).
