Emily One of the statements of this book is the foolishness of woman, which George Sand asserts in no uncertainty of terms that she believes is inherent in their nature. I am wondering what the reaction of others is to this - are women more easily deceived than men?

☯Emily  Ginder If you believe the Genesis account, yes.

Randy I know that Sand believed she was often foolish. One of her own admitted defining characteristics was her constant need to love someone intensely. Unfortunately, she could fairly quickly fall out of love, too. She could not share her lovers, a difficult situation for her bohemian set. BUT...she would sometimes continue to look after her lovers even after they had been "given notice"--breaking up was truly hard to do because she tended to mother her lovers.
