A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on drinking, husbands, love, needs, satisfaction, sharing, vices, wine, and wives

A wife says to her husband (or vice versa), "Do you love me?" "Of course," he replies. "I've been married to you for twenty years, haven't I?" How satisfied would we be if we presented someone with a vintage wine and, asking his opinion of it, he replied, "I'm drinking it, aren't I?" Love still needs expression between those who share it.

A Quote by John Taylor on brothers, children, companions, friendship, god, good, husbands, kindness, relatives, sister, and wives

It is true, we do not like to lose a good, kind companion, a wife, a husband, a child, a brother, a sister, or any of our near and dear friends or relatives; but we have to do it, and it is right and proper that we should. They go a little before us; when we get there they will receive and welcome us and say, "God bless you, you have come at last." That is the way I look at it. I ex pect to strike hands and embrace my friends who have gone before.

A Quote by John Smith on age, christianity, compassion, daughters, debt, execution, fatherhood, heart, history, husbands, power, respect, salvation, sister, success, and women

Smith's first report of his salvation at the hands of Pocahontas evidently occurs in a 1616 letter to Queen Anne, written to notify the Crown of his debt to the Indian princess "before she [Pocahontas] arrived at London. . . . "(John Smith, The General History of Virginia) Pocahontas disembarked at Plymouth, England with her husband, John Rolfe, on June 31, 1616, to become the first Indian woman ever to visit Britain. Her subsequent success with the royal court is well-known. "That some ten yeeres agoe being in Virginia, and taken prisoner by the power of Powhatan their chiefe king, I received from this great Salvage exceeding great courtesie, especially from his sonne Nantaquaus . . . and his sister Pocahontas, the kings most deare and wel-beloved daughter, being but a childe of twelve or thirteen yeeres of age, whose compassionate pitifull heart, of my desperate estate, gave me much cause to respect her: I being the first Christian this proud king and his grim attendants ever saw: and thus inthralled in their barbarous power, I cannot say I felt the least occasion of want that was in the power of those my mortall foes to prevent, notwithstanding al their threats. After some six weeks fatting amongst those Salvage Courtiers, at the minute of my execution, she hazarded the beating out of her owne braines to save mine, and not onely that, but so prevailed with her father, that I was safely conducted to James towne..."

A Quote by John Ruskin on husbands, idleness, lovers, mystery, power, sons, and world

Will you not covet such power as this, and seek such throne as this, and be no more housewives, but queens? There is no putting by that crown; queens you must always be; queens to your lovers; queens to your husbands and sons; queens of higher mystery to the world beyond. . . . But alas! you are too often idle and careless queens, grasping at majesty in the least things, while you abdicate it in the greatest.

A Quote by John Milton on delay, god, good, grace, husbands, knowledge, laws, modesty, praise, pride, study, women, and yielding

For contemplation he and valour formed; For softness she and sweet attractive grace, He for God only, she for God in him; His fair large front and eye sublime declare Absolute rule; and hyacinthine locks Round from his parted forelock manly hung Clustering, but not beneath his shoulders broad. Which implied Subjection, but required with gentle sway And by her yielded, by him best received; Yielded with coy submission, modest pride, And sweet reluctant amorous delay. . . . God is thy law, thou mine: to know no more Is woman's happiest knowledge and her praise. . . . For nothing lovelier can be found In woman, than to study household good, And good works in her husband to promote.

John Milton (1608 - 1674)
