George Gordon Byron
“When people say, "I've told you fifty times," / They mean to scold, and very often do; / When poets say, "I've written fifty rhymes," / They make you dread that they 'II recite them too;
In gangs of fifty, thieves commit their crimes; / At fifty love for love is rare, 't is true, / But then, no doubt, it equally as true is, / A good deal may be bought for fifty Louis.”
George Gordon Byron

George Gordon Byron

Colette
“It was fun to see him becoming sententious again, glorying in a science he had invented, and as positive as a village soothsayer.

'So one should neither give nor receive?' I laughed. 'And if the lover is poor, his mistress indigent, then both she and he must tactfully let themselves and each other die?'

'Let them die,' he repeated.

I had accompanied him as far as the revolving glass door of the lobby.

'Let them die,' he said again. 'It's less dangerous. I can swear on my word of honor that I never gave a present or made a loan or an exchange of anything except . . . this . . .'

He waved both hands in a complicated gesture which fleetingly indicated his chest, his mouth, his genitals, his thighs. Thanks no doubt to my fatigue, I was reminded of an animal standing on its hind legs and unwinding the invisible. Then he resumed his strictly human significance, opened the door, and easily mingled with the night outside, where the sea was already a little paler than the sky.”
Colette, The Pure and the Impure

Rodica Ojog-Braşoveanu
“Când întâlnești un bărbat ca Don Juanul tău, imposibil, scandalos de seducător, amuză-te cât poți, dar ai grijă să-ți încui inima în safe superblindat. Dacă ești însă slabă de înger, cotește-o urgent pe altă uliță.”
Rodica Ojog-Braşoveanu, O toaleta a la Liz Taylor

There is no born Don Juan,
For we are all lovers.”

José Zorrilla
“Clamé al cielo, y no me oyó.
Mas, si sus puertas me cierra,
de mis pasos en la Tierra
responda el cielo, no yo.”
José Zorrilla, Don Juan Tenorio

Dejan Stojanovic
“Those in Argentina, Mexico and Peru,
Colombia and the Caribbean
Bear La Mancha and Quixote in their hearts
For he is an ultimate and overlooked Don Juan.”
Dejan Stojanovic

George Gordon Byron
“...and there the stories
Of martyrs awed, as Spagnoletto tainted
His brush with all the blood of all the sainted.”
George Gordon Byron

Alexander Pushkin
“Mutluluk için doğmadım ben;
Ruhum yabancıdır buna;
Fayda yok yetkin halinizden:
Ben layık değilim ona.
İnanın(vicdan bir güvence)
Evlilik büyük bir işkence.
Size duysam da sıcaklık,
Soğuk tutar alışkanlık;
Ağlarsınız: o yaşlar benim
Dokunmaz hiç yüreğime,
Döndürür beni deliye.
Hangi gülleri,karar verin,
Hymenaios bize hazırlar
Belki de çok uzun yıllar!”
Alexander Pushkin, Eugene Onegin
