Men and women.

There is the consensus that men are from Mars and that women are from Venus.
If the saying is true then it is not a reference to albedo. …

If you move among men to learn from [them] the trades of men then you will learn integrity, and by the sweat of your brow [?] straight talking.

You will learn that if you fail with them, you must hold your hand up straight away with a word for the wise. To pretend with them is to court disaster and to behave dishonestly with them is to ensure the marriage takes place without delay.

And if you steal from them then the contract will be fulfilled in no small measure and suffering neither tardiness or limit. They will cross the sea to deal with you if you treat them lightly.

Most crime is committed by men. It is in no small part a retribution, either of crooks in spite or from honest men in redress. There is almost always a reason behind it whatever the case.

Petty and meaningless crime is only carried out by fools and children. If you work with real men you will find these things out straight away.

And the reward for honesty is that a youth submitting to their training will be capable of earning his living among his fellows in any place he chooses. And too he will be inducted to the secrets of the art or craft he chooses to learn. So that if he learns all he may he can rest assured that all his understandings will encompass the world of science with but one exception

Well that's someone's ancient opinion. I dare say things may be pretty much the same in the pubs I no longer frequent. In the sober light of day when [a bunch of drunken navvies fails once more to turn up for work] one might tend to other opinions.

Let's see if I can find one about women.

(Anybody got any pictures?)
