*The man who sings the praises of the fox is a man who owns no henhouse. Understand a person’s true state or situation, before you listen to their blandishments too much.
*Listening is a fine art, requiring a person to hear what someone is actually saying, not hearing what they want them to say. More proper listening might occur if anyone actually tried to do it.
No matter how happily a woman may be married, it always pleases her to discover there is a nice man who wishes she were not.
