from the quote book

“a woman’s heart is such a complex problem — the owner thereof is often most incompetent to find the solution of this puzzle.”
the scarlet pimpernel, baroness orczy

“a woman who is secure in who she is — honest about her weaknesses and humble about her strengths — is a woman who is hard to resist.”
— john thomas

the journey from the first quote to the second — now that will be the interesting part.
