The Burden of Woman

“It is really a hard life. Men will not be nice to you if you are not good-looking, and women will not be nice to you if you are.”

** Agatha Christie

Happy “Leap Year”

In Scotland, it was required that a woman who was thinking of taking advantage of the leap year privilege must let her intentions be known by wearing a scarlet flannel petticoat. The edge of the petticoat must be clearly visible in order to give the wary male a sporting chance to get out of the way. This is obviously a man-made rule.
**Howard V. Harper

Wandering Waifs

“She was free in her wildness. She was a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belonged to no man and to no city”

**Roman Payne

Well!

 It is easier for the mare when a woman gets off the cart.

**Russian Version of ‘no women, no cry”

Mothers are SCARY!

An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy.

Window to the Character

The window by jb00bs

“The window” by jb00bs

“The faithful man perceives nothing less than opportunity in difficulties. Flowing through his spine, faith and courage work together: Such a man does not fear losing his life, thus he will risk losing it at times in order to empower it. By this he actually values his life more than the man who fears losing his life. It is much like leaping from a window in order to avoid a fire yet in that most crucial moment knowing that God will appear to catch you.”

**Criss Jami

The Hidden Pain

“I cannot think well of a man who sports with any woman’s feelings and there may often be a great deal more suffered than a stander-by can judge of.”

**Jane Austen
