Thomas Hardy about reading (“Tess of the d'Urbervilles”, 1891) - Why didn't you tell me there was danger in men-folk? Why didn't you warn me? Ladies know what to fend hands against, because they read novels that tell them of these tricks; but I never had the chance o' learning in that way, and you did not help me!
