Woman wins her victories not through fighting, nor through beavery, but through persistance and tenacity. The male's pugnactiy (Like to fight) is more intense and open, but less sustained; He is readier to make up, or to surrender for the sake of peace. He is defeated before the battle begins. And if by some chance he should win, the woman need only cry, and he is lost. The woman always receives what she wants if she weep for it twice. The wise wife will pull it down as a fundamental rule of war: "If at the first you don't succeed, cry again".
