Quotation of the Week

19th September

[W]hen a good book came out on the menopause... I couldn't decide whether I wanted all wives to prop it up in front of their husbands' breakfast cornflakes or whether we should keep it all strictly to ourselves.

For such female rhythms as men have heard of, it sometimes seems, are usually turned into an excuse for not taking them seriously.

Katharine Whitehorn, 'Getting On', View from a Column (1981)
