But in the life of a woman, from the time of her childhood upwards, a thousand things arise for the hands to do, and the question is, how often you are likely to feel ashamed of not sending for the servants to do them? Avoid this false and fatal idea as much as possible. The work of the hands dishonors no one; it is honorable.
Your small man, not in the amount of business, but small-minded, dearly loves to hold back until you have sent him notice of draft made on him; he at once sends on a remittance then and his little soul takes comfort in telling, when the draft on him is presented, 'I do not owe them anything; their bill is paid. Or else he waits till the draft is presented and dishonors it because it is drawn 'with exchange. But there ought to be a keener sense of the honor to be won in paying bills promptly.
"'Captain Gahagan, sobbed she, 'GO GO GOGGLE IAH! "'My soul's adored! replied I. "'Swear to me one thing. "'I swear.

All I ask of God is that I may die before he dishonors my name. Those who have no children lose many pleasures, but they escape great sufferings."
"Alas! I have the melancholy certainty of losing her. She has not a week to live. My dear duke, you don't know what it is to marry beneath you. A woman who was a cook, and has the tastes of a cook! who dishonors me ah! I am much to be pitied. I have had the honor to explain my position to Madame la Dauphine.
The purity or the power of love may be corrupted the same as any other faculty, and when a man makes up his mind to marry and shuts his eyes and grabs in the dark for a companion, he dishonors the woman he captures and commits a crime against God and society. In this enlightened age there should be comparatively few mistakes made in the selection of a suitable partner.
But it goes into every department of thought and life, into opinions, principles, religion. It shapes the creed, prescribes the form of worship, and puts its excommunicating ban upon all heresy.
