Whatever can a good woman do ?

I trust you have viewed the clip below of a mothers efforts to move the often inert material in her household . "I am not your slave" she might say?

Whatever can a good woman do ? Here 's what,
and here's the intellectual rub from Gilbert to get the men going too !

" Perhaps the most everyday instance of this point is in the case
of women; and their strange and strong loyalty. Some stupid people
started the idea that because women obviously back up their own
people through everything, therefore women are blind and do not
see anything.
They can hardly have known any women. The same women
who are ready to defend their men through thick and thin are (in
their personal intercourse with the man) almost morbidly lucid
about the thinness of his excuses or the thickness of his head.

A man's friend likes him but leaves him as he is: his wife loves him
and is always trying to turn him into somebody else. Women who are
utter mystics in their creed are utter cynics in their criticism.

The devotee is entirely free to criticise; the fanatic can safely
be a sceptic. Love is not blind; that is the last thing that it is.
Love is bound; and the more it is bound the less it is blind.

What should our leaders be doing Eh? Thinking of the future MORE HERE


  1. I did love "The Kings Speech" but I do wonder about what Queen Mum was saying too ( some great glimpses in there though)- have to wait for the mini series perhaps? .
    Sure beats our tired old reactionaries return to more morbid fascination with the classical trap of sacrifices to nature.

  2. See The Queen Mother (BBC series ) excellent. Also
