... "Laugh on, laugh on!" said the blacksmith, stepping out after them.  "I myself laugh at my own folly.  It is in vain that I think, over and over again, where have I left my wits?  She does not love meŚwell, God be with her!  Is Oxana the only woman in all the world?  Thanks be to God! there are many handsome maidens in the village besides Oxana.  Yes, indeed, what is Oxana?  No good housewife will ever be made out of her; she only understands how to deck herself.  No, truly, it is high time for me to leave off making a fool of myself." (Cossack Tales, Gogol, 1860)
