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.
