a woman's wits and a man's temper

Friday, September 16, 2011

...Any woman who is sure of her own wits is a match at any time for a man who is not sure of his own temper....

...No sensible man ever engages, unprepared, in a fencing match of words with a woman.... 

~ Wilkie Collins, The Woman in White, 1860
