‘Let no man boast himself that he has got through the perils of winter, till at least the seventh of May.’

Anthony Trollope 1815 -1882

  1. Gee, that’s pretty tough on us Southern Hemisphere blokes isn’t it? Mind you, the main winter peril around here is the alcohol-swilling-football-fan season. I guess that beats summer, when you run the risk of being bored to death by cricket commentators.

    Lucky you’re a woman, eh? Apparently you’re allowed to boast about survival all year round.

  2. I never quite saw that quote in those sexist terms before, until you brought it up! Although, I guess he didn’t mention women because he thought we were survivors, he just didn’t think of us at all, didn’t put us in the running. A back handed compliment.
