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.

That is why a clever man is always eager to use the wits of a clever woman.
