- "If I knew this is the last time I see you, I'd tell you I love you, and would not just assume foolishly you know it already."
- "She would defend herself, saying that love, no matter what else it might be, was a natural talent. She would say: You are either born knowing how, or you never know."
- " . . . Nothing in this world was more difficult than love."
- "But when a woman decides to sleep with a man, there is no wall she will not scale, no fortress she will not destroy, no moral consideration she will not ignore at its very root: there is no God worth worrying about."
- "The only regret I will have in dying is if it is not for love."
- "The problem with marriage is that it ends every night after making love, and it must be rebuilt every morning before breakfast."
- "My heart has more rooms than a whorehouse."
- " . . . One can be in love with several people at the same time, feel the sorrow with each, and not betray any of them."
- "Always remember that the most important thing in a good marriage is not happiness, but stability."
