Women, as everybody knows, constantly act on impulses which they cannot explain even to themselves.
Women can resist a man's love, a man's fame, a man's personal appearance, and man's money; but they cannot resist a man's tongue, when he knows how to talk to them.
"Men little know, when they say hard things to us, how well we remember them, and how much harm they do us."
"They are all in love with some other man. Who gets the first of a woman's heart? In all my experience I have never yet met with the man who was Number One. Number Two, sometimes. Number Three, Four, Five, often. Number One, never!"
