The silliest woman can manage a clever man But it needs a very clever woman to manage a fool
Rudyard Kipling Quote
The silliest woman can manage a clever man; But it needs a very clever woman to manage a fool; Rudyard Kipling lays bare the battle of the marital sexes.
This quote is interesting as it is an observation on the psychological roles adopted in certain relationships.
Not Suffering Fools Gladly
The inference is about clearer lines of communication and therefore a better understanding with the more intelligent man whereas the fool brings a whole new level of unpredictability with him that results in a greater requirement of both patience and understanding from the woman.
There have been women aplenty who cut their losses and decided they no longer wished to (to coin another phrase) suffer fools gladly.
Nobel Prize For Literature
Rudyard Kipling was the first British writer and the youngest to date to receive the Nobel Prize for literature in 1907.
He is still considered one of the great British writers and his most famous work is probably The Jungle Book that Walt Disney turned into an animated movie in 1967.
My personal favourite work created by Rudyard Kipling has to be the poem 'If' which still makes the hairs on the back of my neck rise every time I read it. 'If' has to be the most inspiring poem I have ever read.
