Famous quotes containing the word constraint:
“In America a woman loses her independence for ever in the bonds of matrimony. While there is less constraint on girls there than anywhere else, a wife submits to stricter obligations. For the former, her fathers house is a home of freedom and pleasure; for the latter, her husbands is almost a cloister.”
—Alexis de Tocqueville (18051859)
