Excerpt

2

The best and the worst in man respond only to woman's touch--unfortunately for man.

3

Men reason; women do not. Woman has no logic, and judging from the use it is to man, is better off without it.

4

The present arrangement of society refuses to many the means to live, while forbidding them the right to die when they wish.

5

Woman generally tries to attract a man's eye, and then blames him for being caught by prettiness and superficial charms. But she rarely tries to appeal to his better self.

6

The man who is pockmarked has most to say against freckles.

7

Charity covers a multitude of sins which are committed in her name.

8

Life is full of golden opportunities for doing what we do not want to do.

9

Never compliment a woman and you will earn her undying enmity. Respect is rarely appreciated by her; but compliments are always at a premium, even counterfeits being accepted as greedily as the real.
