: True, true, true. Sometimes I think we are wrong in trying to classify and analyze people by any system, when in fact, each human being is unique and will develop in his/her own way.
Yes, there is always a danger in trying to "lump" people together into groups...we darn humans have a tendency to want to be our own individual selves, no matter where someone else keeps trying to shove us! Ain't it great? For instance, I am constantly referring to poor Cora and Alice as English gentlewomen (because of their references to London, etc) when they are obviously of Scottish descent, as you pointed out earlier. I meant to apologize sooner, and forgot in the face of these other interesting discussions. But since they were daughters of a Scotsman who was in service to England, I hope I can be forgiven! Please??
