chanpagne heartssWhen there’s marriage without love,
there will be love without marriage.
                                                                                                   Benjamin Franklin


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.
                                                                                                     the  Talmud
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.
                                                                                                    G.B. Shaw


Women are made to be loved; not to be understood.
                                                                                                   Oscar Wilde


Marriage is a romance in which
the hero dies in the first chapter.


Love is the most fun you can have
without laughing.


I am a lover and have not found my thing to love.       
                                                                                                    Sherwood Anderson


Love is like the measles; we all have to go through it.
                                                                                                     J.K. Jerome


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.
