There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.
The ultimate end of your education was to make you a good wife.
There may be good, but there are no pleasant marriages.
Wherever the citizen becomes indifferent to his fellows, so will the husband be to his wife, and the father of a family toward the members of his household.
Have you ever heard of a good marriage growing in front of the cameras?
There is more of good nature than of good sense at the bottom of most marriages.
Bring a wife home to your house when you are of the right age, not far short of 30 years, nor much above; this is the right time for marriage.
Always remember that the most important thing in a good marriage is not happiness, but stability.
For a man wins nothing better than a good wife, and then again nothing deadlier than a bad one.
An early-rising man is a good spouse but a bad husband.
An early-rising man... a good spouse but a bad husband.
Many a good hanging prevents a bad marriage.
Now as of old the gods give men all good things, excepting only those that are baneful and injurious and useless. These, now as of old, are not gifts of the gods: men stumble into them themselves because of their own blindness and folly.
Dwelling upon the self too much produces terrible fatigue. A man in that position is deaf and blind to everything else. The fatigue itself makes him cease to see the marvels all around.
The husband who decides to surprise his wife is often very much surprised himself.
A good husband is never the first to go to sleep at night or the last to awake in the morning.
The plain man is familiar with blindness and deafness, and knows from his everyday experience that the look of things is influenced by his senses; but it never occurs to him to regard the whole world as the creation of his senses.
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave.
There is no lonelier man in death, except the suicide, than that man who has lived many years with a good wife and then outlived her. If two people love each other there can be no happy end to it.
A husband who submits to his wife's yoke is justly held an object of ridicule. A woman's influence ought to be entirely concealed.
The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.
Sometimes I think my husband is so amazing that I don't know why he's with me. I don't know whether I'm good enough. But if I make him happy, then I'm everything I want to be.
I promise to be an excellent husband, but give me a wife who, like the moon, will not appear every day in my sky.
My advice to you is get married: if you find a good wife you'll be happy; if not, you'll become a philosopher.
