Quotes regarding Women & Wives

Excellent Women

An old Proverb

A good wife and health is a man's best wealth.

Source Unknown

I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. The next day she locked me in the cellar.


By all means marry. If you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.

Anna Lewis,
To the Bride

Love, be true to her; Life, be dear to her; Health, stay close to her; Joy, draw near to her; Fortune, find what you can do for her; Search your treasure-house through and through for her, follow her footsteps the wide-world over--and keep her husband always a lover.

Bob Edwards

If a man understands one woman he should let it go at that.

Louisa May Alcott,
"Little Women"

To be loved--chosen by a good man is the best and sweetest thing which can happen to a woman.

Sacha Guitry, 1885-1957

When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her.

Ken Dodd, b.1927

I haven't spoken to my mother-in-law for 18 months. I don't like to interrupt her!

Lady Nancy Astor, 1879-1964

I married beneath me, all women do!


Blushing is the color of virtue.

Lucibel VanAtta, "Women Encouraging Women"

Ten Commandments for wives:

I. Honor thy own womanhood, that thy days may be long in the house which thy husband provideth for thee.

II. Expect not thy husband to give thee as many luxuries as thy father hath given thee after many years of hard labor and economies.

III. Forget not the virtue of good humor, for verily all that a man hath will he give for a woman's smile.

IV. Thou shalt not nag.

V. Thou shalt coddle thy husband, for verily every man loveth to be fussed over.

VI. Remember that the frank approval of thy husband is worth more to thee than the sidelong glances of many strangers.

VII. Forget not the grace of cleanliness and good dressing.

VIII. Permit no one to assure thee that thou art having a hard time of it: neither thy mother, nor thy sister, nor thy maiden aunt, nor any of thy kinfold. Thou shalt not let another disparage thy husband.

IX. Keep thy home with all diligence, for out of it cometh the joys of thine old age.

X. Commit thy ways unto the Lord thy God, and thy children shall rise up and call thee blessed.
