  View quote | Arnold, Sir Edwin quotes

Lovers should also have their days off.
  View quote | Barney, Natalie Clifford quotes

The lover of life makes the whole world into his family, just as the lover of the fair sex creates his from all the lovely women he has found, from those that could be found, and those who are impossible to find.
  View quote | Baudelaire, Charles quotes

There exists, between people in love, a kind of capital held by each. This is not just a stock of affects or pleasure, but also the possibility of playing double or quits with the share you hold in the other's heart.
  View quote | Baudrillard, Jean quotes

Pity the selfishness of lovers: it is brief, a forlorn hope; it is impossible.
  View quote | Bowen, Elizabeth quotes

When Death to either shall come -- I pray it be first to me.
  View quote | Bridges, Robert quotes

A man can go from being a lover to being a stranger in three moves flat but a woman under the guise of friendship will engage in acts of duplicity which come to light very much later. There are different species of self-justification.

One seeks to make the loved one entirely happy, or, if that cannot be, entirely wretched.
  View quote | Bruyere, Jean De La quotes

Lovers may be -- and indeed generally are -- enemies, but they never can be friends, because there must always be a spice of jealousy and a something of Self in all their speculations.

One who has not only the four S's, which are required in every good lover, but even the whole alphabet; as for example... Agreeable, Bountiful, Constant, Dutiful, Easy, Faithful, Gallant, Honorable, Ingenious, Kind, Loyal, Mild, Noble, Officious, Prudent, Quiet, Rich, Secret, True, Valiant, Wise; the X indeed, is too harsh a letter to agree with him, but he is Young and Zealous.
  View quote | Cervantes, Miguel De quotes

When a man and a woman have an overwhelming passion for each other, it seems to me, in spite of such obstacles dividing them as parents or husband, that they belong to each other in the name of Nature, and are lovers by Divine right, in spite of human convention or the laws.
  View quote | Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De quotes

There is no pain equal to that which two lovers can inflict on one another. This should be made clear to all who contemplate such a union. The avoidance of this pain is the beginning of wisdom, for it is strong enough to contaminate the rest of our lives.
  View quote | Connolly, Cyril quotes

Busy old fool, unruly Sun, why dost thou thus through windows and through curtains call on us? Must to thy motions lovers seasons run?
  View quote | Donne, John quotes

A lover, when he is admitted to cards, ought to be solemnly silent, and observe the motions of his mistress. He must laugh when she laughs, sigh when she sighs. In short, he should be the shadow of her mind. A lady, in the presence of her lover, should never want a looking-glass; as a beau, in the presence of his looking-glass, never wants a mistress.
  View quote | Fielding, Henry quotes

Lovers who love truly do not write down their happiness.

A lover without indiscretion is no lover at all. Circumspection and devotion are a contradiction in terms.

The more one loves a mistress, the more one is ready to hate her.

I would not miss your face, your neck, your hands, your limbs, your bosom and certain other of your charms. Indeed, not to become boring by naming them all, I could do without you, Chloe, altogether.
  View quote | Martial, Marcus Valerius quotes

These two imparadised in one another's arms, the happier Eden, shall enjoy their fill of bliss on bliss.
  View quote | Milton, John quotes

Every man needs two women, a quiet home-maker, and a thrilling nymph.
  View quote | Murdoch, Iris quotes

Scratch a lover, and find a foe.
  View quote | Parker, Dorothy quotes

An orange on the table, your dress on the rug, and you in my bed, sweet present of the present, cool of night, warmth of my life.
  View quote | Prevert, Jacques quotes

Between lovers a little confession is a dangerous thing.
  View quote | Rowland, Helen quotes

It is easier to keep half a dozen lovers guessing than to keep one lover after he has stopped guessing.
  View quote | Rowland, Helen quotes

Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety. Other women cloy the appetites they feed, but she makes hungry where most she satisfies.
