While most of the quotes on this page do not explicitly state the gender of the speaker, purses have traditionally been an accessory more commonly associated with and used by women. Some of the quotes may be referring to purses in that historical context. For example, the quotes about what can be revealed by examining someone’s “purse” could be making broader observations about a person’s character or financial situation based on the contents of their purse or wallet. However, the meanings and metaphors in the quotes tend to extend beyond the literal object being referenced.
