I know I’m a bit early for Women’s Day (August 8th) but I want to share something I just read in our local community newspaper, the Stanford River Talk, edited by Michelle Hardie.

“It is a wonderful advantage to a man, in every pursuit or avocation, to secure an advisor in a sensible woman. In a woman there is at once a delicacy of tact and a plain soundness of judgement which are rarely combined in an equal degree in a man. A woman, if she really be your friend, will have a sensitive regard for your character, honour, repute. She will seldom councel (sic) you to do a shabby thing; for a woman friend always desires to be proud of you.”The Earl of Lytton (1831-1891).
