Men leave the machinery of social life to their womenfolk, and it is upon their women that the task of telling social lies invariably falls. Moreover, ac women are in a state of subjection they are driven to employ the subtle weapons of the weak against their male protectors. Just as the Jews, owing to ages of persecution and oppression have developed their mental powers in a marvellous degree, so women after ages of subjection have developed their capacity for finesse and diplomacy to an equally marvellous degree. That is why a clever man is always eager to use the wits of a clever woman.
