NP - Gordian Knot - Grace (live)

This is taken from Oscar Wilde's "The Picture Of Dorian Gray". Interesting words, even if I don't agree with them.

"My dear boy, no woman is a genius. Women are a decorative sex. They never have anything to say, but they say it charmingly. Women represent the triumph of matter over mind, just as men represent the triumph of mind over morals."

Its the last sentence which I find so interesting. Even though its an absolute generalisation, and a hideous one at that, its something that can be applied even today (one might say especially today). What do you think?

    What do you mean by 'especially today'?

    by especially today I mean more in this time than any time in history.

    I know what it means, I was just wondering why you think that the sentence can be applied 'especially today'

    Oh hey, I'm not the one who thinks it, just making an observation ;)
