Plain Jane: “Men were put into the world to teach women the law of compromise.”
-Jane Austen in her letters
And if my experience is a fairly good sample of women as a gender, and I think it is, then this law is one we often like to avoid, pretend to forget, or crush altogether. It seems Jane struggled with it too, she chose to spend her days writing and compromising for no one, for she never found a gentleman worth compromising for. If you have had the pleasure of finding one, make sure you don’t forget this little piece of wisdom.
