Beautiful Quotes

HAG, n. An elderly lady whom you do not happen to like; sometimes called, also, a hen, or cat. Old witches, sorceresses, etc., were called hags from the belief that their heads were surrounded by a kind of baleful lumination or nimbus --hag being the popular name of that peculiar electrical light sometimes observed in the hair.

It would not now be proper to call your sweetheart a hag --that compliment is reserved for the use of her grandchildren.
