“You know I am a woman, lacking wit.”
“Outward beauty is not enough; to be attractive a woman must use words, wit, playfulness, sweet-talk, and laughter to transcend the gifts of Nature”
“It is a sad thing when men have neither the wit to speak well nor the judgment to hold their tongues”
Jean de la Bruyere
“Man forgives woman anything save the wit to outwit him.”
“The witty woman is a tragic figure in American life. Wit destroys eroticism and eroticism destroys wit, so women must choose between taking lovers and taking no prisoners.”
“Wit is more necessary than beauty; and I think no young woman ugly that has it, and no handsome woman agreeable without it.”
“Women are strange and incomprehensible, a device invented by Providence to keep the wit of man well sharpened by constant employment”
