“Women, then, are only children of a larger growth; they have an entertaining tattle, and sometimes wit; but for solid, reasoning good-sense, I never knew in my life one that had it, or who reasoned or acted consequentially for four-and-twenty hours together.”

(From Letters to His Son by Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield, 1694 – 1773)
