“My wife is a light eater. As soon as it's light, she starts to eat.”
“I will rather trust a Fleming with my butter, parson Hugh the Welchman with my cheese, an Irishman with my aqua vitae bottle, or a thief to walk with my ambling gelding, than my wife with herself.”
William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
'The Merry Wives of Windsor'
“It is to be regretted that domestication has seriously deteriorated the moral character of the duck. In a wild state, he is a faithful husband.....but no sooner is he domesticated than he becomes polygamous, and makes nothing of owning ten or a dozen wives at a time.”
Isabella Beeton (1836-1865)
“Often has the affectionate wife caused her husband a sleepless night and severe distress, which, had an enemy inflicted, she would scarcely have forgiven -- because she has prepared for him food which did not agree with his constitution or habits.”
Sarah Josepha Hale, 'The Good Housekeeper' (1839)
“There is a vast difference between the savage and the civilised man, but it is never apparent to their wives until after breakfast.”
Helen Rowland (1876-1950) ‘A Guide to Men’
