Oliver Brown Family Man

The dangerous time in marriage is not when the husband realises that his wife’s looks have lost their bloom (he does not notice it). It is when he realises that he has lost an appreciative and admiring audience.


In a quarter of a century, my wife and I have not had a quarrel. The reason is that upon marriage, we embarked on two separate monologues which never coincided long enough to reach disagreement.

There is many a man who would object to being a hen-pecked husband but who enjoys being a chicken-pecked father.

Mahomet achieved a miracle compared with which those of Jesus pale into insignificance - he persuaded his wife that he was a prophet.

Your second childhood is much better than your first as you do not have the same trouble with your teeth.

You realise you are married when you no longer snib the door when you take a bath. You realise that your children are growing up when you start snibbing it again.


Whoso loses a daughter gains a bathroom and a telephone.
