- Notable Hesiod Quotes Index -
Bring a wife home to your house when you are of the right age, not far short of 30 years, nor much above this is the right time for marriage.
Do not let a flattering woman coax and wheedle you and deceive you she is after your barn.
For both faith and want of faith have destroyed men alike.
Giving is good, but taking is bad and brings death.
Whoever has trusted a woman has trusted deceivers.
Whoever, fleeing marriage and the sorrows that women cause, does not wish to wed comes to a deadly old age.
