Like strawberry wives, that laid two or three great strawberries at the mouth of their pot, and all the rest were little ones.
Wives are young men's mistresses; companions for middle age; and old men's nurses.Francis Bacon
Then Israel's monarch, after Heaven's own heart, His vigorous warmth did, variously, impart To Wives and slaves: and, wide as his command, Scattered his Maker's image through the land.john dryden
There is no gilding of setting sun or glamor of poetry to light up the ferocious and endless toil of the farmers' Wives.(Hannibal) Hamlin Garland
I cannot forbid a person to marry several Wives, for it does not contradict Scripture.Martin Luther
Speaking of love, one problem that recurs more and more frequently these days, in books and plays and movies, is the inability of people to communicate with the people they love: husbands and Wives who can't communicate, children who can't communicate with their parents, and so on. And the characters in these books and plays and so on, and in real life, I might add, spend hours bemoaning the fact that they can't communicate. I feel that if a person can't communicate, the very least he can do is to shut up.tom lehrer
Like strawberry Wives, that laid two or three great strawberries at the mouth of their pot, and all the rest were little ones.Francis Bacon
Happiness lies in conquering one's enemies, in driving them in front of oneself, in taking their property, in savouring their despair, in outraging their Wives and daughters.
Whilst you are proclaiming peace and good will to men, emancipating all nations, you insist upon retaining an absolute power over Wives. But you must remember that arbitrary power is like most other things which are very hard, very liable to be broken — and notwithstanding all your wise laws and maxims we have it in our power not only to free ourselves but to subdue our masters, and without violence throw both your natural and legal authority at our feet.Abigail Adams
Translations (like Wives) are seldom strictly faithful if they are in the least attractive.roy campbell
Strong be thy wallis that about the standis;Wise be the people that within the dwellis;Fresh is thy ryver with his lusty strandis;Blith be thy chirches, wele sownyng be thy bellis;Riche be thy merchauntis in substance that excellisFair be thy Wives, right lovesom, white and small;Clere be thy virgyns, lusty under kellis:London, thou art the flour of Cities all.william dunbar
Even so husbands should love their Wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.paul of tarsus
Men’s immediate path from the Insanity Track to the Sanity Track is in demanding that both sexes have the freedom to strike a balance between homeplace and workplace. Men must expect their Wives to financially support them to be fathers as much as they now financially support their Wives to be mothers. Women must have our approval to marry the warrior of love rather than the warrior of money.warren farrell
Can you support the expense of a husband, hussy, in gaming, drinking and whoring? Have you money enough to carry on the daily quarrels of man and wife about who shall squander most? There are not many husbands and Wives, who can bear the charges of plaguing one another in a handsome way.john gay
First one gets works of art, then criticism of them, then criticism of the criticism, and, finally, a book on The Literary Situation , a book which tells you all about writers, critics, publishing, paperbacked books, the tendencies of the (literary) time, what sells and how much, what writers wear and drink and want, what their Wives wear and drink and want, and so on.Randall Jarrell
To be a good mother a woman must have sense, and that independence of mind which few women possess who are taught to depend entirely on their husbands. Meek Wives are, in general, foolish mothers; wanting their children to love them best, and take their part, in secret, against the father, who is held up as a scarecrow.mary wollstonecraft
“Adam knew Eve his wife and she conceived.” It is a pity that this is still the only knowledge of their Wives at which some men seem to arrive.
No rich man is a patriot, no rich man is a friend. They have all only got one fatherland the Ritz-Carlton; and one friend the mistress they're promising to divorce their Wives for.
Popé… ordered in all the pueblos through which he passed that they instantly break up and burn the images of the holy Christ… and that they burn the temples, break up the bells, and separate from the Wives whom God had given them in marriage and take those whom they desired. They were ordered likewise not to teach the Castilian language in any pueblo…Pedro Naranjo
Happy the Cicadas live, since they all have voiceless Wives.
The ancient Egyptians took precautions against necrophilia by prohibiting the corpses of the Wives of men of rank from being delivered immediately to the embalmers , for fear that the embalmers would violate them.
Soldiers, you brave guys, who are your Wives? Our Wives are our loaded cannons, that's what our Wives are.
Even so husbands should love their Wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
Islam was founded by Mohammed, a demon-possessed pedophile who had 12 Wives, and his last one was a nine-year-old girl.
Charles Dickens: "If Husain fought to quench his worldly desires, (as alleged by certain Christian critics) then I do not understand why his sisters, Wives and children accompanied him. It stands to reason therefore that he sacrificed purely for Islam."
