This is written in the Hebrew Talmud, the book where all of the sayings and preaching of Rabbis are conserved over time.
"Be very careful if you make a woman cry,
because God counts her tears.
The woman came out of a man's rib.
Not from his feet to be walked on.
Not from his head to be superior,
but from the side to be equal.
Under the arm to be protected,
and next to the heart to be loved."
