Title: Men who Win Women
File Attachment:
Attachment Type:

God has so made the sexes that women, like children, cling to men; lean upon them as though they were superior in mind and body. They make them the suns of systems, and their children revolve around them.- Men are gods, if they but knew it, and women are burning incense at these shrines. Women, therefore, who have good minds and pure hearts, want men to lean upon. Think of their reverancing drunkard, a lear, a fool, or a libertine. If a man would have a woman to do him homage, he must be manly in every sense; a true gentleman, not after the Chesterfield school, but polite because his heart is full of kindness to all; one who treats her with respect, even deference, because she is a woman; who never condescends to say silly things to her; who brings her up to his level, if his mind is above hers; who is never over-anxious to do right; who has no time to be frivolous with her. Always dignified in speech and act; who never spends too much upon her; never yields to temptation, even if she puts it in his way; ambitious to make his mark in the world whether she encourages him or not; who is never familiar with her to the extent of being an adopted brother or cousin; who is not over careful about dress; always pleasant and considerate, but always keeping his place of the man; the head, and never losing it, such deportment, with noble, principles, good mind, energy and industry, will win any woman in the world who is worth winning.
