Who Quoth What?
Some of you enjoyed the matching of quotes and writers when I did it previously so here are a further twelve quotes and twelve names. They are mixed nationalities to give everyone a chance. They aren’t easy but have a go and - need I say - no googling or equivalent please.
Here are the Quotes:

5. A woman, especially if she have the misfortune of knowing anything, should conceal it as well as she can.
