    When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    Men are the managers of the affairs of women
    for that God has preferred in bounty
    one of them over another, and for that
    they have expended of their property.
    Righteous women are therefore obedient,
    guarding the secret for God’s guarding.
    And those you fear may be rebellious
    admonish; banish them to their couches,
    and beat them.
