Men always want to be a woman’s first love.
That is their clumsy vanity. We women have
a more subtle instinct about things. What we
like is to be a man’s latest romance.
The magic of our first love is the ignorance
that it can ever end.
If I love you, what business is that of yours?
The only victory over love is flight.
Love in France is a comedy; in England a tragedy;
in Italy an opera aria; and in Germany a melodrama.
A man in love mistakes a hairlip for a dimple.
A man can be happy with any woman
as long as he doesn’t love her.
There are people in the world
who would never have been in love
if they had never heard of love.
To offer a man friendship when love
is in his heart is like giving a loaf
of bread to one who is dying of thirst.
Love is the only game that is not
called on account of darkness.
One man’s mate is another man’s passion.
He who marrieth for love, without money,
hath good nights and sorry days.
(Definition of a second marriage:)
the triumph of hope over experience.
