You can quote me

I’m not the first person to write about love and sex. People like Jane Austen, Shakespeare, and Aristophanes beat me to it. Here are a few words of wisdom on the topic that’s as old as the cavemen.

The difference between sex and death is that with death you can do it alone and no one is going to make fun of you.
— Woody Allen

These impossible women! How they do get around us! The poet was right: Can’t live with them, or without them.
— Aristophanes

Love ceases to be a pleasure when it ceases to be a secret.
— Aphra Behn

Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.
— Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
— William Shakespeare

Women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place.
— Billy Crystal, When Harry Met Sally…

You don’t marry someone you can live with; you marry the person who you can’t live without.
— Unknown

I pay very little regard…to what any young person says on the subject of marriage. If they profess a disinclination for it, I only set it down that they have not yet seen the right person.
— Jane Austen

Real love stories never have endings.
— Richard Bach

    How about:

    “Love — a temporary insanity curable by marriage” — Ambrose Beirce.

    Too true…
