Jean Baptiste Poquelin Molière

  The head of a woman is like a weathercock on the top of a house, which turns with the slightest wind.  2
  Snoring like old boots.  3
  A woman is like the ivy, which grows luxuriantly whilst it clings to some sturdy tree, but never thrives if it is separated from it.  4
