All right…I’m glad it’s a girl. And I hope she’ll be a fool – that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Great Gatsby. Chapter 1, Daisy on her newborn girl. She is saying there is no hope for women to make a difference in early society, as they are not seen as intellectural figures in the early 1900s. Better for a woman to act dumb and naive and allow men take care of her, than trying to become strong and opionionated.
