PLUTARCH

is chaste. A woman should no more forget to be amiable because she is faithful, than to be neat because she is thrifty. Decorum in a woman is rendered as disagreeable by harshness as frugality is by sluttishness.
Pheidias, in representing the Elean Aphrodite with her foot upon a tortoise, meant women to take it as a symbol of house-keeping and silence. A woman should talk either to, or through the medium of, her husband ; nor should she resent it if, like a player on the clarinet, she finds a more impressive utterance through another tongue than through her own.
The Greeks who accompanied Cyrus received the following order from their commanders: ` If the enemy come shouting to the attack, await them in silence ; if they come in silence, charge to meet them with a shout.' When a husband has his fits of anger, if he raises his voice, a sensible wife keeps quiet ; if he is silent, she soothes him by talking to him in a coaxing way.
As for you, Eurydice, above all things do your best to keep touch with the sayings of wise and good men, and to have continually in your mouth those utterances which you learned by heart in my school when a girl. By so doing, you will not only be a joy to your husband, but the admiration of other women, when they see how, at no expense, you can adorn yourself with so much distinction and dignity.
This rich woman's pearls, that foreign lady's silks, are not to be worn without paying a large price for them. But the ornaments of Gorgo the wife of Leonidas, of the Claudia of ancient history, and of Cornelia the daughter of Scipio, you may wear for nothing ; and with this adornment your life may be as happy as it is distinguished.
