  WISE WORDS ABOUT WOMEN. From Good Housekeeping published in 1886

  •   Don’t be afraid of wild boys and girls, they often grow up to be the very best men and women. Wildness is not viciousness.
  • In family government let this be always remembered, that no reproof or denunciation is so potent as the silent influence of a good example.
  • The early months of marriage often are times of critical tumult, whether that of a shrimp pool or of deeper waters, which afterwards subsides into cheerful peace.
  • Husband and wife, so much in common, how different in type! She all golden hues and softness, he all dark shades and energy, her step so light and child-like, his so manly and steady. Such a contrast, and yet such a harmony, strength and weakness blended together!
