Quotes

"I am sick of the smell of sour milk, and sour meat, and sour everything, and then the clothes will not dry, and no wet thing does, and everything smells moldy; and altogether I feel as if I never wanted to eat again.” So complained Harriet Beecher Stowe to her husband, Calvin, nine years and five children into their marriage. This is not the Stowe with which most readers are familiar—the “little woman who made this big war,” as Abraham Lincoln reportedly said about the famous author of Uncle TomTom s Cabin ."
"Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything."
..."In the same way," Camping explained, his radio station had been used by God "for the purpose of getting the message of the coming judgment out to the whole world" . Later on, however, he apologised for his mistakes, which he called "sinful", and indicated that he had no intention of making further prognostications...
...of my American ancestor's two young children were snuffed out by a raging frontier fever in 1805, his Irish uncle sent stoic Calvinist condolences: "Dear Nephew, I am sorry to hear of the deaths of your two children. But still I hope you are in the way of your duty to submit to God's will, that is to say the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, blessed be the name of the Lord."
