A review of "Woman: Theme and Variations" by Major A. Corbett-Smith, an author who was known to have never shied-away from a complicated subject (I made that up):
"Woman is the embodiment and highest product of Nature, the incarnation of the primitive life force. Man is Nature's enemy, but while he 'tries to build up a working code of law, of social convention, of moral suasion, of scientific inquiry, woman remains self-contained, self-sufficing and aloof'."
"There is no mystery about women, he announces...she is never quite sure of herself in comparison with other women; but she is well aware of her superiority to man..."
The Book is Available from Amazon:
