Palmistry
Q :

What effect has the size of thumb on the love affairs of females?

A :

With a large thumb, a female will be very cautious, in love matters, and will allow reason to guide her in her choice. With a small thumb, impulse will be the guiding star of affection, and the head must forsooth follow the heart, instead of the heart following the head. A large thumbed woman is not easily gulled, whereas a small thumbed woman is rather quickly fascinated, for withher, love is an all absorbing passion towering high over reason's throne".

Q :

What is the meaning nf the thumb being folded in the hand?

A :

The thumbs of infants are habitually closed overby their fingers, because their character is not yet unfolded, and they have not started to think or act for themselves, but as they do so their thumbs become covered less and less. It is worthy of note that idiots invariably lay their thumbs in their hands with their fingers over them, thus showing that the will or logic is sleeping o rabsent. In death the thumb frequently retires as it were, indicating that will and logic are leaving the house of clay, for the thumb which is the sign of active intelligence is no longer required. I have also noticed that in cases of partial paralysis, and of prolonged rheumatism, the thumb often folds itself in the hand uncon­sciously, so that it is necessary to ascertain whether there is any disease in the system, before passing judgment upon the intellect from this position of the thumb alone: although where otherwise in good health the possessor of the folded thumb jack sability to govern and direct his own affairs.

An animal is ed and sensual nature, one much and easily influenced by the opposite sex: its possessor is an eager seeker after pleasure, and his love will not be very pure or elevating, and is therefore more correctly called lust.

Palmistry

What does a thin and slender Third phalange of the thumb indicate?

Love of an ideal and noble character. Love to the possessor of such a sign is a sacred and pure thing, something ethereal and belonging more to the soul than to the body, but it shows a tendency for jealousy.

Palmistry
Q :

What does a slender Second phalange of the thumb indicate?

A :

Great tact and diplomacy: persons who possess this shape of thumb, are never at a loss how to get out of difficulty. They can be shy and secretive when it suits their purpose, and are full of plans and ideas, but they lack broad mindedness and are apt to feel too strongly on  some points and disregard others, although able to keep their ideas to themselves: are, in short, unable to see all round a subject.

Q :

What does the turning back of the First phalange of the thumb indicate?

A :

Generosity, running into extravagance if full and fleshy; but if flat, it is a sign of ability to keep the temper under with a firm strong decision: if pointed, great impulsiveness and extravagant ideas.
