Sixteenth Century Quote of the Week

"L'homme en toute saison,
A gaigner biens pourchasse:
La femme en la maison
Les garde, & les amasse."

"The husband, in every season,
Seeks to earn goods;
The wife keeps and collects them
In the home."

Gilles Corrozet (1510-1568), writer and publisher
Hécatongraphie (1543)
