C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Husband
 
  The lover in the husband may be lost.
Lord Lyttleton.    
  1
                And to thy husband’s will
Thine shall submit; he over thee shall rule.
Milton.    
  2
        I will attend my husband, be his nurse,
Diet his sickness, for it is my office.
Shakespeare.    
  3
                            With thee goes
Thy husband, him to follow thou art bound;
Where he abides, think there thy native soil.
Milton.    
  4
            To all married men, be this a caution,
Which they should duly tender as their life,
Neither to doat too much, nor doubt a wife.
Massinger.    
  5
        As the husband is, the wife is:
  Thou art mated with a clown,
And the grossness of his nature
  Will have weight to drag thee down.
Tennyson.    
  6
        The wife, where danger or dishonour lurks,
Safest and seemliest by her husband stays,
Who guards her, or with her the worst endures.
Milton.    
  7
  A good husband makes a good wife at any time.
Farquhar.    
  8
        Marry! no, faith; husbands are like lots in
The lottery, you may draw forty blanks
Before you find one that has any prize
In him; a husband generally is a
Careless domineering thing, that grows like
Coral; which as long as it is under water
Is soft and tender; but as soon
As it has got its branch above the waves
Is presently hard, stiff, not to be bow’d.
Marston.    
  9
                    Know then,
As women owe a duty—so do men.
Men must be like the branch and bark to trees,
Which doth defend them from tempestuous rage;—
Clothe them in winter, tender them in age,
Or as ewes’ love unto their eanlings lives;
Such should be husbands’ custom to their wives.
If it appears to them they’ve strayed amiss,
They only must rebuke them with a kiss;
Or cluck them as hens’ chickens, with kind call,
Cover them under their wing, and pardon all.
Wilkins.
