Affairs

Famous quotes containing the word affairs:

    Men are the managers of the affairs of women
    for that God has preferred in bounty
    one of them over another, and for that
    they have expended of their property.
    Righteous women are therefore obedient,
    guarding the secret for God’s guarding.
    And those you fear may be rebellious
    admonish; banish them to their couches,
    and beat them.
    Qur’An. Women 4:38, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)

    Dance with a girl three times, and if you like the light of her eye and the tone of voice with which she, breathless, answers your little questions about horseflesh and music—about affairs masculine and feminine,—then take the leap in the dark.
    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)

    In a free society the state does not administer the affairs of men. It administers justice among men who conduct their own affairs.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)
