Although the opposite sex may occasionally vex, where would one be without the other? Mark Twain comments:

Human intelligence cannot estimate what we owe to woman, sir. She sews our buttons; she mends our clothes; she ropes us in at the church fairs; she confides in us; she tells us whatever she can find out about the little private affairs of the neighbors; she gives us good advice, and plenty of it; she soothes our aching brows; she bears our children - ours as a general thing.

I repeat, sir., that in whatever position you place a woman she is an ornament to society and a treasure to the world. As a sweetheart she has few equals and no superiors; as a cousin, she is convenient; as a wealthy grandmother with an incurable distemper, she is precious; as a wet nurse, she has no equal among men. What, sir, would the people of the earth be without woman? They would be scarce, sir, almighty scarce. - Mark Twain

From the book Because You're You..A very special guy.
