old wives summer quotes

- 10 of 200 Results
The sun shines bright in the old Kentucky home;
'Tis summer, the darkeys are gay;
There was an old party of Lyme
Who married three wives at one time.
The seasons alter; hoary-headed frosts
Fall in the fresh lap of the crimson rose,
To me, fair friend, you never can be old,
For as you were when first your eye I ey'd,
There was an old fellow of Lyme
Who lived with three wives at one time.
And a sigh heaves from all the small things on earth,
The books, the papers, the old garters and union-suit buttons
Wives are young men's mistresses, companions for middle age, and old men's nurses.
Thou saist that dropping houses and eek smoke
And chiding wives maken men to flee
Tell mother that however dogs and samovars might behave themselves, winter comes after summer, old age after youth, and misfortune ...
The argument between wives and whores is an old one; each one thinking that whatever she is, at least she is not the other.
