Wives

Famous quotes containing the word wives:

    To impose celibacy on such a large body as the clergy of the Catholic Church is not to forbid it to have wives but to order it to be content with the wives of others.
    Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712–1778)

    What peaches and what penumbras! Whole families shopping at night!
    Aisles full of husbands! Wives in the avocados, babies in the
    tomatoes!—and you, Garcia Lorca, what were you doing down by
    the watermelons?
    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    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)
