A Quote by John Abernethy on advice, daughters, home, nature, needs, and play

Why, Madam, do you know there are upward of thirty yards of bowels squeezed underneath that girdle of your daughter's? Go home and cut it; let Nature have fair play, and you will have no need of my advice.

John Abernethy (1764 - 1831)
