Telling lies is a fault in a boy, an art in a lover, an accomplishment in a bachelor, and second-nature in a married man.
Helen Rowland (1876 - 1950)

Never trust a husband too far or a bachelor too near.
It takes one woman twenty years to make a man of her son, and another woman twenty minutes to make a fool of him.
Some widowers are bereaved; others relieved.
A bachelor gets tangled up with a lot of women in order to avoid getting tied up to one.
A bachelor never quite gets over the idea that he is a thing of beauty and a boy forever.
A husband is what is left of the lover after the nerve has been extracted.
When a girl marries, she exchanges the attentions of all the other men of her acquaintance for the inattention of just one.
Soft, sweet things with a lot of fancy dressing - that's what a little boy loves to eat and a grown man prefers to marry.
After marriage, a woman's sight becomes so keen that she can see right through her husband without looking at him, and a man's so dull that he can look right through his wife without seeing her.
