Humorous quips and quotes for the cynical romantic, or the romantic cynic. Just in time for Stupid Cupid Day.
there will be love without marriage.
Love is the star men look up to as they walk along,
and marriage is the coal-hole they fall into.
When love was strong, we could have made
our bed on a sword’s blade:
now, when it has become weak,
a bed of sixty cubits is not large enough for us.
What a strange arithmetic is marriage that
can make of two loving people
one unloving couple.
Love never dies of starvation, but often of indigestion.
N. de l’Enclos
First love is only a little foolishness
and a lot of curiosity.
Women are made to be loved; not to be understood.
Marriage is a romance in which
the hero dies in the first chapter.
Love is the most fun you can have
I am a lover and have not found my thing to love.
Love is like the measles; we all have to go through it.
You gave me the key to your heart, my love,
then why did you make me knock?
Women in love consist of a little sighing,
a little crying, a little dying—and a
great deal of lying.
