=Wife.=

She is mine own:
And I as rich in having such a jewel,
As twenty seas, if all their sands were pearl,
The water nectar, and the rocks pure gold.

SHAKS.: _Two Gent. of V.,_ Act ii., Sc. 4.

We'll leave a proof, by that which we will do,
Wives may be merry, and yet honest too.

SHAKS.: _Mer. W. of W.,_ Act iv., Sc. 2.

The wife, where danger or dishonor lurks,
Safest and seemliest by her husband stays,
Who guards her, or with her the worst endures.

MILTON: _Par. Lost,_ Bk. ix., Line 267.

She is a bonnie wee thing,
This sweet wee wife o' mine.

BURNS: _My Wife's a Winsome Wee Thing._

The world well tried--the sweetest thing in life
Is the unclouded welcome of a wife.

N.P. WILLIS: _Lady Jane,_ Canto ii., St. 11.
