He got it right

Sometimes he doesn't have very flattering things to say about women. But sometimes he gets right. Like here...

     A woman's beauty lights up a man's face,
          and there is nothing he desires more.
     If kindness and humility mark her speech,
          her husband is more fortunate than other men.
     He who acquires a wife gets his best possession,
          a helper fit for him and a pillar of support.
          (Sirach 36:27-29)
