Good Advice...

I love Fermin, a whacky and wise character, in The Shadow of the Wind. He gives our young Daniel some great advice one day...about women:

"Real women are won over bit by bit. It's all a question of psychology, like a good faena in the bullring...I'm not in a hurry, you see? All good things must wait. There are yokels out there who think that if they touch a woman's behind and she doesn't complain, they've hooked her. Amateurs. The female heart is a labyrinth of subtleties, too challenging for the uncouth mind of the male racketeer. If you really want to possess a woman, you must think like her, and the first thing to do is to win over her soul. The rest, that sweet, soft wrapping that steals away your senses and your virtue, is a bonus."


  1. Excellent post you really should write that book. I will be the first man to step up to the plate and buy the first 100 copies!

    Thank you for sharing.

    "There is a physical relationship with a woman that you don't have with anybody else, but that's not about love. Love is a spiritual thing."

    1. Thank you, Randy! I like the quote you shared, and I agree with Ziggy. Love is most definitely a spiritual thing. :)
