She Chews Her Food Well

I agree with the late William Cobbett about picking a wife. See that she chews her food well and sets her foot down firmly on the ground when she walks, and you’re all right.

– Gabriel Betteredge in Wilkie Collin’s The Moonstone. Words of wisdom, so ladies, chew with your mouth closed and walk confidently, and you’ll find yourselves a man.

(Just kidding, do whatever you want, I just think this quote is great).
