Who was Helen Rowland?
Helen Rowland was an American journalist and humorist. For many years she wrote a column in the New York World newspaper called Reflections of a Bachelor Girl. Many of her pithy insights from these columns were published in book form, including Reflections of a Bachelor Girl, The Rubáiyát of a Bachelor, and A Guide to Men.
- Love, the quest; marriage, the conquest; divorce, the inquest.
- Somehow a bachelor never quite gets over the idea that he is a thing of beauty and a boy forever.
- A widow is a fascinating being with the flavor of maturity, the spice of experience, the piquancy of novelty, the tang of practiced coquetry, and the halo of one man's approval.
- Don't waste time trying to break a man's heart; be satisfied if you can just manage to chip it in a brand new place.
- A man's desire for a son is usually nothing but the wish to duplicate himself in order that such a remarkable pattern may not be lost to the world.
- Never trust a husband too far, nor a bachelor too near.
- It takes one woman twenty years to make a man of her son -- and another woman twenty minutes to make a fool of him.
- Failing to be there when a man wants her is a woman's greatest sin, except to be there when he doesn't want her.
- No man can understand why a woman shouldn't prefer a good reputation to a good time.
- The follies which a man regrets most in his life, are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity.
