  • The handbag is the movable base of her supplies — the depot of her expected needs. A woman's handbag is a mysterious dungeon. It's the key to her real self; the prosaic answer to many poetic conceptions.

  • Every woman's handbag is a lost and found department in itself. It is strange but things actually disappear there, as by magic. They finally reappear on the surface after three or four investigations and complete pell-mell of the contents. Every busy driver is fatalistically resigned to having a lady barring the passage while searching for a nickel in the depths of her handbag.
