When you see a woman who can go nowhere without a staff of admirers, it is not so much because they think she is beautiful, it is because she has told them they are handsome.
* Jean Giraudoux
No matter how happily a woman may be married, it always pleases her to discover that there is a nice man who wishes that she were not.
* H. L. Mencken
The pretty fellows you speak of, I own entertain me sometimes, but is it impossible to be diverted with what one despises? I can laugh at a puppet show, at the same time I know there is nothing in it worth my attention or regard.
* Lady Mary Wortley Montagu
Venus favors the bold.
Why does a man take it for granted that a girl who flirts with him wants him to kiss her--when, nine times out of ten, she only wants him to want to kiss her?
* Helen Rowland
Whoever loves above all the approach of love will never know the joy of attaining it.
* Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
