PLUTARCH

passages as a sacred secret between you and your wife, to make an open display of fault-finding and reproach.
A man who dislikes to see his wife eating with him teaches her to satisfy her appetite when she gets by herself. Similarly, one who is never a merry companion to her, nor shares in her sport and laughter, teaches her to look for private pleasures apart from him.
When the Roman was admonished by his friends for having divorced a wife who was chaste, rich, and beautiful, he stretched out his shoe and remarked: ` Yes, and this looks fine and new, but no one knows where it chafes me.' The wife must not rely upon her dowry, her birth, or her beauty. The matters in which she touches her husband most closely are conversation, character, and companionship. Instead of making these harsh and vexatious day after day, she must render them compatible, soothing, and grateful. Physicians are more afraid of fevers which spring from vague causes gradually accumulating, than of those for which there is a great and manifest reason. So it is these little, continual, daily frictions between man and wife, which the world knows nothing of, that do most to create the rifts which ruin married life.
On another occasion, when a youthful courtier had married a handsome woman of bad repute, Olympias remarked, 'The fellow has no judgement ; otherwise he would not have married with his eyes.' Marriage should not be made with the eyes ; neither should it with the fingers, as it is in the case of some, who reckon up the amount of the dower, instead of calculating the companionable quality, of the wife they are marrying.
Xenocrates being somewhat harsh in character, though otherwise a high type of man, Plato recommended him to sacrifice to the Graces. Now I take it that a woman of strict morals stands in special need of the graces in dealing with her husband, so that-as Metrodorus used to say-she may live with him on pleasant terms and not 'in a temper because she
