A Guide to Men: Being Encore Reflections of a Bachelor Girl
by Helen Rowland (1875-1950)
A series of occasionally witty one-liners, poems and considerations on the subject of Men, Women and their Conjunction. By turns tender, bland, sexist (in both directions!) and funny. Summary by Cori Samuel.
From the text:
A man is like a park squirrel; if you fling your favors or your charms at his head he will never come up and eat out of your hand.
Even Satan could find a woman to call him “Dearie,” if he would simply tell her that all he needed was “a beautiful woman’s uplifting influence.”
Every bride fancies that she married the original “cave-man” until she tries to persuade him to go out and argue with the furniture-movers.
