Family

Infidelity
Engrave this Quote The hood-winked husband shows his anger, and the word jealous is flung in his face. Jealous husband equals betrayed husband.

Sadness
Engrave this Quote Sorrow has the fortunate peculiarity that it preys upon itself. It dies of starvation. Since it is essentially an interruption of habits, it can be replaced by new habits. Constituting, as it does, a void, it is soon filled up by a real horror vacuum.
