"Man, or at least criminal man, has lost all enterprise and originality. As to my own little practice, it seems to be degenerating into an agency for recovering lost lead pencils and giving advice to young ladies from boarding-schools."

"I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself."
~ An Ideal Husband
by Oscar Wilde
When women are the advisers, the lords of creation don't take the advice till they have persuaded themselves that it is just what they intended to do. Then they act upon it, and, if it succeeds, they give the weaker vessel half the credit of it. If it fails, they generously give her the whole.
~ Little Women
by Louisa May Alcott
