Wise words about women, advice from Good Housekeeping published in 1886
- The excellent woman is she who, if the husband dies, can be a father to his children.
- Marriage is a lottery, in which men stake their liberty and women their happiness.
- Nothing does so much honor to a woman as her patience, and nothing does her so little as the patience of her husband.
- The reason why so few marriages are happy is because young ladies spend their time in making nets, not in making cages.
- Stories first heard at a mother’s knee are never wholly forgotten, a little spring that never quite dries up in our journey through scorching years.
- God has set the type of marriage everywhere throughout the creation. Each creature seeks its perfection in another. The very heavens and earth picture it to us.
- Let no man value at a little price a virtuous woman’s counsel, her winged spirit is feathered oftentimes with heavenly words, and, like her beauty, ravishing and pure.
