Some women in marrying demand all and give all: with good men, they are happy; with base men they are the broken-hearted.
Some women demand everything and give little: with weak men, they are tyrants; with strong men, they are the divorced.
Some women demand little and give all: with congenial souls, they are already in heaven; with uncongenial, they are soon in their graves.
Some women give little and demand little: they are the heartless, and they bring neither the joy of life nor the peace of death.
James Lane Allen.
