My mother is a wise woman. When at the age of ten I ceased to be a child and became a maiden, she said to me these words:
" A woman before men should maintain a flower-like silence and should withdraw herself at the earliest moment that is possible without confusion."
I remembered what she said, therefore, when I stood before my husband. I bowed my head and placed my two hands before me. I answered him nothing when he spoke to me. But, oh, I fear he finds my silence dull!
