Book Excerpt: 
. . .IN the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns—and turns—and turns!

There are lots of "sure cures" for love, but the quickest and surest is—another love.

If there were only two women and one man in the world, the man would marry the brunette and then spend the rest of his life peeping over her shoulder and trying to flirt with the blonde.

A woman always embalms the corpse of a dead love; a man wisely cremates it, and plants a new love in the ashes.

A fool and her money are soon courted.

A woman's pity for a man who loves her against her will may be akin to love; but a man's pity for a woman who loves him without his permission is a twin brother to boredom.

Marriage is the miracle which affords a woman a chance to gratify her vanity, pacify her family, mortify her rivals, and electrify her friends, all at the same time. Marriage is sweet![28]

Love is what incites the caveman to drag a woman. . . Read More

Sassy, vintage quotes from a bachelorette in olde courting society of America. Funny if not substantial.

“A husband is a lover with his nerve removed.” A Guide to Men by Helen Rowland is a humorous book that is guaranteed to put both sexes in stitches. I found myself laughing out loud as I read this refreshing guide to the differences of the sexes. Marriage, divorce, children and even death are served

Timelessly funny. I’m not sure if it’s depressing or encouraging that nothing has changed since these witty one-liners were first printed. On the one hand it’s depressing that there is no past of gallant, loving, gentleman we can look back on to glorify, on the other hand I feel so connected to this

What costs the joining of the sexes and the propagation of the species

An old school classic. Some truth between the lines; some outdated, some very current.
