Quotation of the Week

21st August

It is the legend of a gentleman named Brown, able and determined to support his wife, in body and spirit, to come between her and the world, the keeper of his flock, the provider.... I think that there is no doubt that in her own unanalytic fashion Mrs Brown realised that there was only one way to hold her husband in the manly pose--this was to lean on him. She leaned. He remained upright.

Storm Jameson, 'Man the Helpmate' in Mabel Ulrich (ed), Man, Proud Man (1932)
