*I suspect that most women secretly hope their first child is a girl. Being married has already shown them what raising a small boy is like!
*Old age is hard to define and specify. Some have not reached it at ninety, being still enthused and excited about living. Others are over the hill before they can grow a decent beard.
If we all said to people’s faces what we say behind one another’s backs, society would be impossible!
Honore de Balzac 1799-1850
