Quote #4

BEROWNE: From women's eyes this doctrine I derive.
They sparkle still the right Promethean fire;
They are the books, the arts, the academes,
That show, contain, and nourish, all the world…(4.3.93)

It's unfortunate that Berowne busts this out when there are no ladies present. He'd have his pick of women.

Quote #5

PRINCESS OF FRANCE: We are wise girls to mock our lovers so. (5.2.32)

In a world dominated by men, women's control of sexual access gives them some measure of power.

Quote #6

ROSALINE: How I would make him fawn, and beg, and seek,
And wait the season, and observe the times,
And spend his prodigal wits in bootless rhymes,
And shape his service wholly to my hests,
And make him proud to make me proud that jests! (5.2.33)

Rosaline looks forward to knocking Berowne off his high horse and humbling the man a bit.
