He explains that in his time has seen more women that she has seen sparrows, three-time has he has fought duels on account of women. He has refused twelve women and nine women have refused him.”There was a time when I played the fool, scented myself, used honeyed words, wore jewellery, made beautiful bows….i used to love, to suffer, to sigh at the moon, to get sour, to thaw, to freeze… I used to love passionately, madly, every blessed way, devil take me; I used chatter like magpie about emancipation, and wasted half my wealth on tender feelings, but now, you must excuse me!
