Wives quotes
Wives
Here's to our wives and sweethearts - may they never meet.

- John Bunny
It is very difficult to know people and I don't think one can ever really know any but one's own countrymen. For men and women are not only themselves; they are also the region in which they are born, the city apartment or the farm in which they learnt to walk, the games they played as children, the old wives'tales they overheard, the food they ate, the schools they attended, the sports they followed, the poets they read, and the God they believed in. It is all these things that have made them what they are, and these are the things that you can't come to know by hearsay, you can only know them if you have lived them.

- W. Somerset Maugham
The calmest husbands make the stormiest wives.

- Proverb, English
Marry a mountain girl and you marry the whole mountain.

- Proverb, Irish
Aristotle maintained that women have fewer teeth than men; although he was twice married, it never occurred to him to verify this statement by examining his wives'mouths.

- Bertrand Russell
That's what a man wants in a wife, mostly; he wants to make sure one fool tells him he's wise.

- Eliot, George
To name oneself is the first act of both the poet and the revolutionary. When we take away the right to an individual name, we symbolically take away the right to be an individual. Immigration officials did this to refugees; husbands routinely do it to wives.

- Jong, Erica
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
Teenage boys, goaded by their surging hormones run in packs like the primal horde. They have only a brief season of exhilarating liberty between control by their mothers and control by their wives.

- Paglia, Camille
London is full of women who trust their husbands. One can always recognize them. They look so thoroughly unhappy.

- Wilde, Oscar
Perhaps all artists were, in a sense, housewives: tenders of the earth household.

- Jong, Erica
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave himself up for her. [Ephesians 5:25]

- Bible
Choose a wife by your ear than your eye.

- Fuller, Thomas
Mahatma Gandi was what wives wish their husbands were: thin, tan and moral.

By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class.

- Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
If courtesans and strumpets were to be prosecuted with as much rigor as some silly people would have it, what locks or bars would be sufficient to preserve the honor of our wives and daughters?

- Mandeville, Bernard
Do not choose your wife at a dance, but in the field among the harvesters.

- Proverb, Czech.
No woman is really an insider in the institutions fathered by masculine consciousness. When we allow ourselves to believe we are, we lose touch with parts of ourselves defined as unacceptable by that consciousness; with the vital toughness and visionary strength of the angry grandmothers, the fierce market women of the Ibo's Women's War, the marriage-resisting women silk workers of pre-Revolutionary China, the millions of widows, midwives, and the women healers tortured and burned as witches for three centuries in Europe.

- Rich, Adrienne
Legislators: Rape their wives and do two years. Kill their children and do five years. Steal their money and kiss your ass goodbye.

- Powell, L. R.
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.
