"A bitch always smokes." He looks back at Lucy. "A bitch is the opposite of a whore. A bitch doesn't need anybody. Or she wants people to think she doesn't need anybody. And she smokes to prove it."

– Thibaut (Saint Paul Trois Châteaux: 1948 , page 23)

  1. I wonder if this could have been a common conception about women who smoked back then. Nowadays that wouldn't hold true in the least I think, people that take up smoking usually do so at a a young age and since we all know the addictive properties of cigarettes now, we know how hard it is to quit. Well, not me personally, I have never smoked, does that mean I am not a bitch? Quite frankly I think I am quite capable of being one even w/o the ciggies! Hee hee!
