The age of a woman doesn't mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.
John Lennon

No doubt exists that all women are crazy; it's only a question of degree.
W. C. Fields

Most women set out to try to change a man, and when they have changed him they do not like him.

Gloria Steinem

A woman has two smiles that an angel might envy, the smile that accepts a lover before words are uttered, and the smile that lights on the first born babe, and assures it of a mother's love.
Thomas Chandler Haliburton

It is little men know of women; their smiles and their tears alike are seldom what they seem.
Amelia Barr

There is a physical relationship with a woman that you don't have with anybody else, but that's not about love. Love is a spiritual thing.

I like Ralph Waldo Emerson's quote. He was definitely a 'man ahead of his time'. :-)

Re: Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Even an old fiddle need some TLC and a lot of care be to play the finest notes.
Some new strings when needed, proper housing to keep the wood from either drying/swelling, the proper finish for the wood, so the notes can be heard, and a lot of fine tuning so the best music can be heard.
It is a high maintenance instrument.
How do I know this?
My Onkel Sverre had an old fiddle. He never married,And he never understood why he had no luck with women.We , the family, said that if he paid even half the attention to the women in is life, that he paid to his fiddle. He would find a woman that would play his song.
