:: Recording Notes ::
0 - Jones: A man has only his mind to carry him. A woman thinks twice when a man thinks once. A woman is best served by thinking matters through before acting, as opposed to reacting irrationally in the moment. A man is built from a strong foundation and is made from the earth. A woman is made of the earth and was not created to rule the world.
