Quote by Jean Jacques Rousseau
A man says what he knows, a woman says what will please.
This quote suggests that men tend to speak honestly and express their knowledge, while women sometimes prioritize harmony and pleasing others. It implies that men may be more inclined to share their thoughts, regardless of the reaction or response, whereas women might be conscious of the emotional impact of their words. The quote highlights a perceived difference in communication styles between genders, implying that men often prioritize truth, while women prioritize social harmony. However, it is essential to note that this statement generalizes and may not be true for all individuals.
When you come to look into this argument from design, it is a most astonishing thing that people can believe that this world, with all the things that are in it, with all its defects, should be the best that omnipotence and omniscience have been able to produce in millions of years. I really cannot believe it. Do you think that, if you were granted omnipotence and omniscience and millions of years in which to perfect your world, you could produce nothing better than the Ku Klux Klan or the Fascists? Moreover, if you accept the ordinary laws of science, you have to suppose that human life and life in general on this planet will die out in due course: it is a stage in the decay of the solar system; at a certain stage of decay you get the sort of conditions of temperature and so forth which are suitable to protoplasm, and there is life for a short time in the life of the whole solar system. You see in the moon the sort of thing to which the earth is tending -- something dead, cold, and lifeless.
