surely woman has been created from a curved rib, and this is the secret of her beauty, and the secret of the attraction towards her. and this is no defect in her, because ‘the eyebrows look beautiful due to them being curved’. so if she errs, do not rebuke her in a manner in which there is no gentleness, attempting to straighten her; otherwise you will simply break her and her breaking, is her divorce. at the same time do not let her off upon that mistake, otherwise her crookedness will increase and she will become arrogant with her ego. thereafter, she will never soften for you and she won’t listen to you, so stay in between the two.
Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. this is a fault. those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. for these there is hope. they are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only beauty. there is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. books are well written, or badly written. that is all.
