Wives quotes
Wives
It's my old girl that advises. She has the head. But I never own to it before her. Discipline must be maintained.

- Dickens, Charles
LEAD, n. A heavy blue-gray metal much used in giving stability to light lovers -- particularly to those who love not wisely but other men's wives. Lead is also of great service as a counterpoise to an argument of such weight that it turns the scale of debate the wrong way. An interesting fact in the chemistry of international controversy is that at the point of contact of two patriotisms lead is precipitated in great quantities. Hail, holy Lead! -- of human feuds the great And universal arbiter; endowed With penetration to pierce any cloud Fogging the field of controversial hate, And with a sift, inevitable, straight, Searching precision find the unavowed But vital point. Thy judgment, when allowed By the chirurgeon, settles the debate. O useful metal! -- were it not for thee We'd grapple one another's ears alway: But when we hear thee buzzing like a bee We, like old Muhlenberg, "care not to stay." And when the quick have run away like pellets Jack Satan smelts the dead to make new bullets.

- Ambrose Bierce
If you are really Master of your Fate, it shouldn't make any difference to you whether Cleopatra or the Bearded Lady is your mate.

- Nash, Ogden
A man would prefer to come home to an unmade bed and a happy woman than to a neatly made bed and an angry woman.

- Dietrich, Marlene
When a man opens the car door for his wife, it's either a new car or a new wife.

- Edinburgh, Prince Philip, Duke of
Men are April when they woo, December when they wed: maids are may when they are maids, but the sky changes when they are wives.

- William Shakespeare
I have often been downcast, but never in despair; I regard our hiding as a dangerous adventure, romantic and interesting at the same time. In my diary I treat all the privations as amusing. I have made up my mind now to lead a different life from other girls and, later on, different from ordinary housewives. My start has been so very full of interest, and that is the sole reason why I have to laugh at the humorous side of the most dangerous moments.

- Frank, Anne
Wives are people who feel they don't dance enough.

- Marx, Groucho
If I was your wife Sir, I'd poison you! Madam, if you were my wife, I'd let you!

- Churchill, Winston
In that second it dawned on me that I had been living here for eight years with a strange man and had borne him three children.

- Ibsen, Henrik
Every mother generally hopes that her daughter will snag a better husband than she managed to do... but she's certain that her boy will never get as great a wife as his father did.

A man's wife has more power over him than the state has.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
She'd have you spew up what you've drunk when you were out.

- Caecilius
I do not think that there are any men who are faithful to their wives.

- Onassis, Jacqueline Kennedy
He's a fool that marries, but he's a greater that does not marry a fool; what is wit in a wife good for, but to make a man a cuckold?

- Wycherley, William
In Biblical times, a man could have as many wives as he could afford. Just like today.

- Abigail Van Buren
The North American system only wants to consider the positive aspects of reality. Men and women are subjected from childhood to an inexorable process of adaptation; certain principles, contained in brief formulas are endlessly repeated by the Press, the radio, the churches, and the schools, and by those kindly, sinister beings, the North American mothers and wives. A person imprisoned by these schemes is like a plant in a flowerpot too small for it: he cannot grow or mature.

- Paz, Octavio
In America a woman loses her independence for ever in the bonds of matrimony. While there is less constraint on girls there than anywhere else, a wife submits to stricter obligations. For the former, her father's house is a home of freedom and pleasure; for the latter, her husband's is almost a cloister.

- Tocqueville, Alexis De
Perhaps all artists were, in a sense, housewives: tenders of the earth household.

- Jong, Erica
Here's to our girlfriends and wives; may they never meet!

- Groucho Marx
