Venus, a beautiful good-natured lady, was the goddess of love; Juno, a terrible shrew, was the goddess of marriage -- and they were always mortal enemies.

Many a man in love with a dimple makes the mistake of marrying the whole girl.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

Marriage is a dull meal with the desert at the beginning.

Marriage is like a cage. One sees the birds outside desperately trying to get in, and those inside equally desperate to get out.

Love is only a dirty trick played on us to assure the continuation of the species.

The greatest sacrifice in married life is the sacrifice of the adventureous attitute towards life.

François de La Rochefoucauld (

True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about, but very few have seen.

When a girl marries, she exchanges the attentions of many men for the inattention of one.
