Katharina Quotes

Five of the best book quotes from Katharina
  1. #1
    “Hearing thy mildness prais’d in every town,
    Thy virtues spoke of, and thy beauty sounded,--
    Yet not so deeply as to thee belongs,--
    Myself am mov’d to woo thee for my wife.”
  2. #2
    “I am asham’d that women are so simple
    To offer war where they should kneel for peace,
    Or seek for rule, supremacy, and sway,
    When they are bound to serve, love, and obey.
    Why are our bodies soft, and weak, and smooth,
    Unapt to toil and trouble in the world,
    But that our soft conditions and our hearts
    Should well agree with our external parts?”

    “Forward, I pray, since we have come so far,
    And be it moon, or sun, or what you please.
    And if you please to call it a rush candle,
    Henceforth I vow it shall be so for me.”
  4. #4
    “Thy husband is thy lord, thy life, thy keeper,
    Thy head, thy sovereign; one that cares for thee,
    And for thy maintenance; commits his body
    To painful labor, both by sea and land;
    To watch the night in storms, the day in cold.”
  5. #5
    “The poorest service is repaid with thanks.”
