Short Link to this Quote:



In this quote, Helen Rowland is playing on the old saying “a fool and his money are soon parted.” She replaces “his” with “her” to reference a female fool. The best interpretation is that Rowland is commenting on how people may try to take advantage of or flatter a wealthy woman who lacks wisdom about financial matters.

The quote suggests that a “fool” who comes into money may find herself easily charmed or courted by those primarily interested in her wealth, not in genuinely knowing her.

Rowland saw the risk of naïve or inexperienced wealthy women being deceived or used by those ingratiating themselves simply to gain access to her money and resources.
