‎”It has been said in praise of some
men, that they could talk whole
hours together upon anything; but it
must be owned to the honor of the
other sex that there are many
… among them who can talk whole
hours together upon nothing. I have
known a woman branch out into a
long extempore dissertation on the
edging of a petticoat, and chide her
servant for breaking a china cup, in
all the figures of rhetoric.”
– “Female Orators”
~ Joseph Addison
