Interests Washington Irving best sums up my sentiments on love "To a man the disappointment of love may occasion some bitter pangs: it wounds some feelings of tenderness- it blasts some prospects of felicity; but he is an active being- he may dissipate his thoughts in the whirl of varied occupation, or may plunge into the tide of pleasure; or, if the scene of disappointment be too full of painful associations, he can shift his abode at will, and taking as it were the wings of the morning, can "fly to the uttermost parts of the earth, and be at rest."But woman's is comparatively a fixed, a secluded, and meditative life. She is more the companion of her own thoughts and feelings; and if they are turned to ministers of sorrow, where shall she look for consolation? Her lot is to be wooed and won; and if unhappy in her love, her heart is like some fortress that has been captured, and sacked, and abandoned, and left desolate."
Favorite Books Claude Lévi-Strauss rightly pointed out, " The symbols of man are infinite in their complexity, but simple in their rules."
