ADDITIONAL NOTES
„There's something in a woman beyond all human delight; a magnetic virtue, a charming quality, an occult and powerful motive. The husband rules her as head, but she again commands his heart, he is her servant, she his only joy and content : no happiness is like unto it, no love so great as this of man and wife, no such comfort, as a sweet wife.“
Robert Burton, The Anatomy of Melancholy, published 1621
