A “Map of a Woman’s Heart” >> Do you agree?

I end the day, and my brief and rare (these days) rumination with this image that I got from Brain Pickings‘ regular newsletter.

According to Brain Pickings, “A Map of the Open Country of a Woman’s Heart was a map created by D. W. Kellogg circa 1833–1842, in the tradition of these maps of the human conditionyou might recall, subtitled “Exhibiting its internal communications, and the facilities and dangers to Travellers therein.” Though it mostly depicts Woman as a sentimental, selfish, and superficial being driven by vanity, it places Love at the center of her heart, with Good Sense, Patience, and Prudence at its tip — or bottom, depending on the interpretation.”

Here you go–what do you think?
