He thought the best line he had ever invented was: TO TRUST A WOMAN IS STUPID, BUT TO SHOW HER THAT HE DIDN’T TRUST HER WAS DOWNRIGHT FATAL.
Initially i thought that the statement was puerile, but a lil cogitation on the statement threw up interesting IDEAS.
Between the two that is TRUST ON A WOMAN and SHOWING A WOMAN THAT HE DIDN’T TRUST HER, there was a great swathe of land with IMMENSE possibilities. What are the possibilities? Why should a MAN not trust a woman? Why should he NOT show that he doesn’t trust her?
MAN can never COMPREHEND a woman’s mind. She could make up anything except her mind. Even if she ever did, that making up is subject to many provisos and exceptions and conditional clauses. Man can never FOLLOW HER COMPREHENSION. Can anyone tell why Cleopatra withdrew her navy when Antony was badly in need of her? Can anyone tell why Delilah would want to discover and destroy the strength of Samson? Can anyone tell why Emperor Justinian’s wife Theodora led a dissolute and scandalous life despite sharing the powers of the throne? NO ONE CAN.
WHY WASTE ONE’S TIME KNOWING, WHEN HISTORY HAS TAUGHT MEN that YOU CAN MANAGE, BUT NOT UNDERSTAND WOMEN?
So, in the process of management the line TO TRUST A WOMAN IS STUPID, BUT TO SHOW HER THAT HE DIDN’T TRUST HER WAS DOWNRIGHT FATAL seems to hold good!!
