-What other people think is more important than what we feel.
-Never make a fuss-it might attract the attention of an enemy tribe.
People who are different are dangerous; they belong to another tribe; they want our lands and our women.
-We must marry, have children, reproduce the species.
-Love is only a small thing, enough for one person, and any suggestion that the heart might be larger than this is considered perverse.
-When we marry, we are authorized to take possession of the other person, body and soul.
-We must do jobs we detest because we are part of an organized society, and if everyone did what they wanted to do, the world would come to a standstill.
