"Thy husband is thy lord, thy life, thy keeper,
Thy head, thy sovereign, one that cares for thee,
And for thy maintence commits his body
To painful labor both by sea and land,
To watch the night in storms, the day in cold,
Whilst though liest warm at home, secure and safe,
And craves no other tribute at thy hands
But love, fair looks, and true obedience-
Too little payment for so great a debt.
Such duty as the subject owes the prince,
Even such a woman oweth to her husband;
And when she is froward, peevish, sullen, sour,
And not obedient to his honest will,
What is she but a foul contending rebel
And graceless traitor to her loving lord?
I am ashamed that women are so simple
To offer war where they should kneel for peace,
Or seek for rule, supremacy, and sway
When they are bound to serve, love, and obey."
Act 5, Sc. 2, 162-180 from The Taming of the Shrew
Katherine giving her speech on what she has learned by being tamed by Petruchio.
Tare and I went to see a play one of our community group members were in with the whole group this past weekend. It was a fun time having dinner and seeing a play; I think it was the first one I've seen! But to be honest, I am not much of a play/musical/performance person haha.
