A Letter to Three Wives

Quotations

Mrs. Finney: Can’t we have peace in this house even on New Year’s Eve?
Sadie: You got it mixed up with Christmas. New Year’s Eve is when people go back to killing each other.

Mrs. Finney: “Good night, Mother dear, and don’t wait up.” If a daughter of mine ever really talked like that I’d cut her tongue out!

Addie Ross: She won’t stay mad at him for long. She’s too much in love. Pretty soon she’ll be full of self-reproach. Ha ha! Women are so silly.

Porter Hollingsway: It’s a man’s world. Yeah! See something you want, go after it and get it! That’s nature. It’s why we’re made strong and women weak. Strong conquer and provide for the weak. That’s what a man’s for! Teach our kids that, there’d be more men!
