  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 162. The proverb today is "Hell

  • hath no fury like a woman scorned. " Okay. Let's take a look at the note The

  • proverb is most often used as a warning to be careful or beware of a woman who

  • has been rejected in love. It's mostly used that way. Like you had better be careful

  • you know, the woman that's rejected in love, there may be no greater anger out

  • there than that. Or by extension some journalists sometimes will use it to

  • refer to women about anything that upsets them. All right. Let's continue. The

  • origin of this proverb comes from William Congreve's " The Morning Bride" in

  • 1697. So this is really old. The exact quote was " Heaven has no rage. " We still

  • use rage to also mean you know out-of-control anger. " Like love to hatred. "

  • Meaning I guess from turning from love to hatred. "Turned nor hell. "So this is really,

  • really the second part that has lasted. "Nor hell a fury. " A fury is a great anger

  • also. A great powerful anger. "Like a woman scorned. " Okay. Let's continue here. Hath is

  • an old use of the verb have. So in this case, it just simply means "has" today. Yeah.

  • So hell hath. So hell has no fury. Okay. So it just means "has. " Fury is strong anger.

  • So hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

  • To scorn is to show a very strong feeling of no respect for someone or

  • something. Yeah. Well to be honest , anybody that cheats on anybody sometimes they

  • feel like that person didn't respect them enough. Because if they respected them

  • they wouldn't cheat. That's kind of the idea behind it. So that one thinks ... or

  • also that one thinks is stupid or has no value too. You could be scorned in that

  • way. So, so the anger could really build. Okay. Okay. Good. And anyway, let's

  • give a couple of examples of just how we would hear it used. A perfect example of

  • hell hath no fury like a woman scorned is the old movie, Fatal Attraction" with

  • the actors Michael Douglas and Glenn Close. Yeah. I remember when this movie

  • was out. I remember there was a lot of women saying, Yeah. Teach men a lesson not

  • to . Something like that. So that's what we might say. So hell hath no ...

  • Obviously she ...it was really to be honest , she went crazy in the movie. But that was an example.

  • And that's what all the journalists... everybody was talking about at the time.

  • They were all using this sort of phrase. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

  • Okay. And number two here. Your ex-wife sued the pants off of you. Well you know,

  • that's a humorous way to means to sue somebody out of a lot of money. Sued the

  • pants off you. What did you expect ? You cheated on her. Hell hath no fury like a

  • woman scorned. So don't expect any sympathy from her because you cheated on

  • her. And that's how your divorce came. So well I guess you got what you deserved.

  • Anyway that's what they mean. Anyway I hope you got it. I

  • hope it was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
