Jews and Greeks

... and the greatest glory of a woman is to be the least talked about by men, whether they are praising you or criticising you.

Pericles, apud Thucydides 2.45.2


Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
... Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Proverbs 31: 28, 31 [The Wife of Noble Character]

'nuff said.
