A mind lively and at ease, can do with seeing nothing, and can see nothing that does not answer.

Young ladies are delicate plants. They should take care of their health and their complexion.

It is always incomprehensible to a man that a woman should ever refuse an offer of marriage. A man always imagines a woman to be ready for anybody who asks her.

The ladies here probably exchanged looks which meant, “Men never know when things are dirty or not;” and the gentlemen perhaps thought each to himself, “Women will have their little nonsense and needless cares.”

There are people, the more you do for them, the less they do for themselves.

Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised, or a little mistaken.
