Simple pleasures are the last refuge of the complex.
Laughter is not a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is the best ending for one.
There is nothing in the world like the devotion of a married woman. It is a thing no married man knows anything about.
One should always be in love. That is the reason one should never marry.
How marriage ruins a man! It is as demoralizing as cigarettes, and far more expensive.
Men marry because they are tired, women because they are curious: both are disappointed.
In married life three is company and two is none.
Yet each man kills the thing he loves, By each let this be heard, Some do it with a bitter look, Some with a flattering word. The coward does it with a kiss, The brave man with a sword!
When one is in love one begins by deceiving oneself, one ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls romance.
When a man has once loved a woman he will do anything for her except continue to love her.
