10. "Modernity has abandoned the household gods, not because we have rejected the idolatry as all Christians must, but because we have rejected the very idea of the household. We no longer worship Vesta, but have only turned away from her because our homes no longer have any hearths. Now we worship Motor Oil. If our rejection of the old idols were Christian repentance, God would bless it, but what is actually happening is that we are sinking below the level of the ancient pagans. But when we turn to Christ in truth, we find that He has ordained every day of marriage as a proclamation of his covenant with the church. A man who embraces what is expected of him will find a good wife and a welcoming hearth. He who loves his wife loves himself."
Author: Douglas Wilson

Author: Elizabeth Von Arnim

Author: Guy De Maupassant
14. "Vastaan janoosi, ja syleilyt juottavat lihan lihaan. Yhtenä kimpaleena kierrymme ovesta sisään ja kaadumme halkaistuista hirsistä rakennetulle pöydälle, ja minä nautin sinua sylini kyllyydestä, hyörin ja pyörin kalusi ympärillä kuin pesällinen hunajaa kehrääviä mehiläisiä. Sinä olet syy elää. Haluan, olen siis olemassa."
Author: Helena Kallio
15. "Lei è sempre stata più sicura di me, pensava, e in quel momento vide distintamente le cause della sua sconfitta, la figuraccia che faceva spettinato e con la barba lunga, le pantofole scalcagnate, le pieghe dei pantaloni del pigiama che sembravano frange avvizzite, la vestaglia mezza su mezza giù, ci sono decisioni nella vita che, per prenderle, è consigliabile esser vestiti come per uscire, con la cravatta e le scarpe lucide, questo significa essere un signore, esclamare in tono offeso, Se la mia presenza la disturba, signora, non ho bisogno che me lo dica, e all'istante si imbocca la porta, senza guardarsi indietro, guardarsi indietro è un rischio tremendo, ci si può anche trasformare in una statua di sale e restare lì alla mercé della prima pioggia."
Author: José Saramago

24. "A woman has her Juno, just as a man has his Genius; they are names for the sacred power, the divine spark we each of us have in us. My Juno can't "get into" me, it is already my deepest self. The poet was speaking of Juno as if it were a person, a woman, with likes and dislikes: a jealous woman.The world is sacred, of course, it is full of gods, numina, great powers and presences. We give some of them names--Mars of the fields and the war, Vesta the fire, Ceres the grain, Mother Tellus the earth, the Penates of the storehouse. The rivers, the springs. And in the storm cloud and the light is the great power called the father god. But they aren't people. They don't love and hate, they aren't for or against. They accept the worship due them, which augments their power, through which we live."
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin

His voice was low and ominous."It doesn't have to take three days," she said, "It just depends how long it takes for you to come to your senses.""My senses?" he shook her so hard she thought her teeth would rattle. "It is you whose mind is disordered if you think you can tame me like some pet! Is that what you think, Vesta? That you can somehow turn a man like me into your little lap dog?""No," she said, as earnest as she had ever been in her life. "I could never imagine you as a lap dog. Ever. You are a Mastiff. Big, powerful, dignified, brave, and yet gentle." She nodded with a look of self satisfaction. "Yes. Most definitely a Mastiff." from THE VIRGIN HUNTRESS"
