Gentleness, docility, and a spaniel-like affection are, on this ground, consistently recommended as the cardinal virtues of the sex; and, disregarding the arbitrary economy of nature, one writer has declared that it is masculine for a woman to be melancholy.

He confronts a basic tool of the measurers the statistical technique called factor analysis, developed by the influential English psychologist Charles Spearman and demonstrates persuasively how factor analysis led to the cardinal error in reasoning of confusing correlation with cause, or, to put it another way, of attributing false concreteness to the abstract. It is this sort of performance that makes the book's eventual refutation of Arthur Jensen seem incidental, for it is far more absorbing to have our powers of reason challenged than it is to have our social consciences shaken.stephen jay gould
It is unbecoming for a cardinal to ski badly.
"The cardinal difficulty," said MacPhee, "in collaboration between the sexes is that women speak a language without nouns. If two men are doing a bit of work, one will say to the other, 'Put this bowl inside the bigger bowl which you'll find on the top shelf of the green cupboard.' The female for this is, 'Put that in the other one in there.' And then if you ask them, 'in where?' they say, 'in there, of course.' There is consequently a phatic hiatus."C. S. Lewis

And, father cardinal, I have heard you say That we shall see and know our friends in heaven: If that be true, I shall see my boy again; For since the birth of Cain, the first male child, To him that did but yesterday suspire, There was not such a gracious creature born.william shakespeare

In an address before the "Academia," which had been organized to combat "science falsely so called," cardinal Manning declared his abhorrence of the new view of Nature, and described it as "a brutal philosophy to wit, there is no God, and the ape is our Adam." ...These attacks from such eminent sources set the clerical fashion for several years.Andrew Dickson White

Many a man eating meat, but observing the cardinal virtues of compassion and truth , and living in the fear of God , is a better Hindu than a hypocrite who abstains from meat.
The Jackdaw sat in the cardinal's chair! Bishop and Abbot and Prior were there, Many a monk and many a friar, Many a knight and many a squire, With a great many more of lesser degree, In sooth a goodly company; And they served the Lord Primate on bended knee. Never, I ween, Was a prouder seen, Read of in books or dreamt of in dreams, Than the cardinal Lord Archbishop of Rheims.
If the cardinal points of costume are Robes,Tato, Rig and Scunge, where are shorts in this compass? Theyare the never Robes as other bareleg outfits have been: the toga, the kilt, the lava-lava, the Mahatma's cotton dhoti; archbishops and field marshals at their ceremonies never wear shorts. The very word means underpants in North America.Les(lie Allan) Murray
