Famous quotes containing the word wives:

    It is as acceptable now to love the wives of others as it is to smoke their cigars and read their books.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    Oh yes, there is a vast difference between the savage and the civilized man, but it is never apparent to their wives until after breakfast.
    Helen Rowland (1875–1950)

    There is a close tie of affection between sovereigns and their subjects; and as chaste wives should have no eyes but for their husbands, so faithful liegemen should keep their regards at home and not look after foreign crowns. For my part I like not for my sheep to wear a stranger’s mark nor to dance after a foreigner’s whistle.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)
