Scarlett, you need kissing badly. That’s what’s wrong with you … You should be kissed and by someone who knows how.
(Rhett Butler, “Gone With The Wind”)
Cosi fan tutti
(W. A. Mozart, on women flirting)
It is only with the heart that on can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
(Antoine de Saint-Exupery)
… then I did the simplest thing in the world
I leaned down … and kissed him
And the world cracked open.
(Agnes de Mille)
I don’t want to live. I want to love first, and live incidentally.
The essential conditions of everything you do must be choice, love, passion.
The thirst of desire is never filled nor fully satisfied.
Those who restrain desire, do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
Love is a better teacher than duty.
Who, being loved, is poor?
Kisses are a better fate than wisdom.
(e. e. cummings)
If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance.
