Dame Agatha Christie, c1940 (Walter Bird)

“Women can accept the fact that a man is a rotter, a swindler, a drug taker, a confirmed liar, and a general swine, without batting an eyelash, and without its impairing their affection for the brute in the least. Women are wonderful realists. ” ― Agatha Christie,  Murder in Mesopotamia
