When we talked only in quotes.

Were he literary, he would perhaps say:

"There is no woman in the world who does not abuse the power she has been able to acquire"

- Pierre Choderlos de Laclos

But he is not, and so I can only respond to myself with:

"Be entirely tolerant or not at all; follow the good path or the evil one. To stand at the crossroads requires more strength than you possess."

"Ordinarily he was insane, but he had lucid moments when he was merely stupid."

-Heinrich Heine

If he were talking about you, he would better say:

"And she has a thousand virtues and not one acknowledged sin,
But she is the sort of person you could liken to a pin.
And she pricks you, and she sticks you, in a way that can't be said,
When you seek for what has hurt you, why, you cannot find the head."

-Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Better yet to say:

"Daphne knows, with equal ease,
How to vex and how to please;
But the folly of her sex
Makes her sole delight to vex."
(Jonathan Swift)

*laughs* but in general, I'd advise him to say:

"Who can describe
Women's hypocrisies! their subtle wiles,
Betraying smiles, feign'd tears, inconstancies!
Their painted outsides, and corrupted minds,
The sum of all their follies, and their falsehoods."
(Orpheus)

Bah to you. I shall answer *you* (oh yes, don't think I wouldn't recognize you!), with Malibu's request for Carroll. As to your chosen quotes on women:

"If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic."

-Through the Looking Glass

"Woman's dearest delight is to wound Man's self-conceit, though Man's dearest delight is to gratify hers."

I meant to add to the other, as for the last bit of the quote: or it sure should be!

We are awaiting your visit to Exit and have told all the lightening bugs to stay in Chicago until el nino arrives.

Glad to hear about the denver trip. Alright, I'll revise my quote, but only if it is to apply specifically to *you*:

"She even had a kind of special position among men: she was an exception, she fitted none of the categories they commonly used when talking about girls; she wasn't a cock-teaser, a cold fish, an easy lay or a sneaky bitch; she was an honorary person. She had grown to share their contempt for most women." (Margaret Atwood)
