In Praise of Women [CARL-MAGNUS]

She wouldn't...therefore they didn't...



So then it wasn't...not unless it...would she?

She doesn't...

God knows she needn't...therefore it's not.

He'd never...therefore they haven't...

Which makes the question absolutely...could she?

She daren't...therefore I mustn't...what utter rot!

Fidelity is more than mere display;

It's what a man expects from life.

Fidelity like mine to

Desiree

And Charlotte, my devoted wife.

The papers...he mentioned papers,

Some legal papers which I didn't see there.

Where were they, the goddamn papers she had to sign?

What nonsense!

He brought her papers,

They were important, so he had to be there.

I'll kill him!...

Why should I bother?

The woman's mine!

Besides, no matter what one might infer,

One must have faith to some degree.

The least that I can do is trust in her

The way that Charlotte trusts in me.

Capable, pliable

Women, women...

Understanding and reliable,

Knowing their place.

Insufferable, yes, but gentle,

Their weaknesses are incidental.

A functional but ornamental

Race.

Durable, sensible

Women, women...

Very nearly indispensable

Creatures of grace.

God knows the foolishness about them,

But if one had to live without them,

The world would surely be a poorer,

If purer,

Place.

The hip-bath...about that hip-bath...

How can you slip and trip into a hip-bath?

The papers...where were the papers?

Of course, he might have taken back the papers.

She wouldn't...therefore they didn't...

The woman's mine!
