Housekeeping ain't no joke.
— Louisa May Alcott

No woman gets an orgasm from shining the kitchen floor.
Betty Friedan housekeeping quote

Housework can kill you if done right.
— Erma Bombeck

Cleanliness is not next to godliness. It isn't even in the same neighborhood. No one has ever gotten a religious experience out of removing burned-on cheese from the grill of the toaster oven.
— Erma Bombeck

A broad margin of leisure is as beautiful in a man's life as in a book. Haste makes waste, no less in life than in housekeeping. Keep the time, observe the hours of the universe, not of the cars. What are threescore years and ten hurriedly and coarsely lived to moments of divine leisure in which your life is coincident with the life of the universe?
— housekeeping quotation by Henry David Thoreau
