Quote by Oscar Wilde
Indeed, no woman should ever be quite accurate about her age. It looks so calculating.
This quote suggests that women should avoid being too precise or meticulous when disclosing their age, as it may be seen as insincere or manipulative. By saying that being "quite accurate" about one's age is calculating, it implies that women who openly state their exact age may be perceived as purposely trying to strategize or manipulate others' perceptions. The quote highlights society's expectations and social norms surrounding women's aging and the pressure to maintain an air of mystery or youthfulness.
Please God, said the embryo, I think that You made me in the shape which I now have for reasons best known to Yourselves, and that it would be rude to change. If I am to have my choice I will stay as I am. I will not alter any of the parts which You have made for me, for other and doubtless inferior tools, and I will stay a defenceless embryo all my life, doing my best to make myself a few feeble implements out of the wood, iron, and other materials which You have seen fit to put before me. If I want a boat I will try to construct it out of trees, and if I want to fly, I will put together a chariot to do it for me.
The majority of the diseases which the human family have been and still are suffering under, they have created by ignorance of their own organic health, and work perseveringly to tear themselves to pieces, and when broken down and debilitated in body and mind, send for the doctor and drug themselves to death.
