Life is too short to silver over this tarnish. The gods, employed to haunt and punish husbands, have no hand for trigger-fine distinctions, their myopia makes all error mortal.
Deliver me from your cold phlegmatic preachers, politicians, friends, lovers and husbands.Abigail Adams
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
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
Hardlyany of the women, who are a full half of the population, work; or if they do, then as a rule their husbands lie snoring in bed.
Not louder shrieks to pitying heav'n are cast, When husbands or when lapdogs breathe their last.Alexander Pope
I now speak of the sex in general. Many individuals have more sense than their male relatives; and some women govern their husbands without degrading themselves, because intellect will always govern.
The divine right of husbands, like the divine right of kings, may it is to be hoped, in this enlightened age, be contested without danger.
Even so husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.paul of tarsus
I confess, without shame, that I am sick and tired of fighting — its glory is all moonshine; even success the most brilliant is over dead and mangled bodies, with the anguish and lamentations of distant families, appealing to me for sons, husbands, and fathers ... it is only those who have never heard a shot, never heard the shriek and groans of the wounded and lacerated ... that cry aloud for more blood, more vengeance, more desolation.william tecumseh sherman
She's adorned amply that in her husband’s eye looks lovely,—the truest mirror that an honest wife can see her beauty in.john tobin
Divorces led to bodies of men (called legislatures) protecting women collectively as other men (called husbands) failed to protect women individually.warren farrell
Italian husbands, in order to buy their wives a fur, spend more than all their European collegues.indro montanelli
In negotiating with rejected lovers or husbands, women must stop thinking they can make everyone happy. In many cases of harassment and stalking, it is clear that the woman never learned how to terminate the fantasy which requires resolution and decisiveness on their part. Wavering, dithering, or passive hysterical fear will only intensify or prolong pursuit.camille paglia
What second love could she [Olympias] make out of her ruined first love? The second love that most women make out of their first love for husbands grows from a mutual and tacit sadness in both husband and wife that he is only in rare moments the man both would like him to be.laura riding
One wife is too much for most husbands to bear, But two at a time there's no mortal can bear.john gay
Even so husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: The Prophet said: "I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful." It was asked, "Do they disbelieve in Allah?" (or are they ungrateful to Allah?) He replied, "They are ungrateful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors and the good (charitable deeds) done to them. If you have always been good (benevolent) to one of them and then she sees something in you (not of her liking), she will say, 'I have never received any good from you."
