Quote by William Feather
Women lie about their age; men lie about their income.
This quote suggests a common tendency among women to be dishonest about their age, likely due to societal pressures and judgments surrounding aging. On the other hand, men are seen as more inclined to misrepresent or exaggerate their income, possibly because societal norms often associate financial success with masculinity and status. It highlights a gender-based stereotype about the kind of lies that individuals might be more likely to engage in, reflecting the different societal expectations and pressures placed on women and men.

I am taught the poorness of our invention, the ugliness of towns and palaces. Art and luxury have early learned that they must work as enhancement and sequel to this original beauty. I am over instructed for my return. Henceforth I shall be hard to please. I cannot go back to toys. I am grown expensive and sophisticated. I can no longer live without elegance: but a countryman shall be my master of revels. He who knows the most, he who knows what sweets and virtues are in the ground, the waters, the plants, the heavens, and how to come at these enchantments, is the rich and royal man. Only as far as the masters of the world have called in nature to their aid, can they reach the height of magnificence.
