Sweat Peas . . .

A Bedouin was asked about women, and being a man who was experienced with them, he said:

The best woman is the tallest when she stands, the most prominent when she sits, and the most truthful when she speaks.

She is the one whose anger subsides quickly, and whose laugh is a beautiful smile.

When she does anything, she does it well.

She obeys her husband and adheres to her home.
