    Queen Victoria put it best...

    "let women be what God intended, a helpmate for man, but with totally different duties and vocations."
    She was wise beyond her years.

    Simon De Beauvoir, on the other hand,

    Society, being codified by man, decrees that woman is inferior; she can do away with this inferiority only by destroying the male's superiority.
    was envious of a human male's inherent superiority.

    And then someone else said, "Behind every great man is an even greater woman.'

    And then someone else said, "Behind every good man is a good woman - I mean an exhausted one."

    And then somebody else said, "Behind every successful man stands a surprised mother-in-law."

    I liked the last one best
    I wonder what Mrs Virgil would say if she saw this thread
    (perhaps Virgil would pay a visit to the couch for the night )

    Just that Virgil is getting too old or probably he too is getting wise beyond his years.

    if by wise beyond her years you mean that she was either 180 yrs old mentally or even stuck in the Stone Age, I certainly agree with you

    Queen Vicky said that? well, it's easy for a queen to spout sound bites like this, seeing as this quote obviously didn't apply to her.
