Famous quotes containing the word husband:

    If women would make themselves appear as elegant to an Husband, as they were desirous to appear to him while a Lover, the Rake, which all women love, would last longer in the Husband than it generally does.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    The elephant, not only the largest but the most intelligent of animals, provides us with an excellent example. It is faithful and tenderly loving to the female of its choice, mating only every third year and then for no more than five days, and so secretly as never to be seen, until, on the sixth day, it appears and goes at once to wash its whole body in the river, unwilling to return to the herd until thus purified. Such good and modest habits are an example to husband and wife.
    St. Francis De Sales (1567–1622)

    Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her; and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.
    Bible: New Testament, Mark 10:11.

    Jesus.
