Memorable Quotes
“Beauty thinks it needs no talent and can feed on itself, so it soon dies.”

“Angel, saint, Devil's spawn, good or evil, you've got me pinned to the wall and labelled as yours until the day I die. And if you die first, then it won't be long before I follow.”

“How wonderful to be understood, and never have to explain.”

“All you need do is say good-bye to yesterday’s loves, and hello to the new. Look around and see who needs you most and you won’t go wrong. Forget who needed you yesterday.”

“Little girls get hurt when they play grown-up games.”

“I sighed, he sighed, the wind and flowers sighed too. I think those marble statues sighed along as well, in their lack of understanding the human condition”

“What women wanted to be eaten alive, choked by a thrusting tongue? Not me, I wanted to be played like a violin, strummed pianissimo, in largo timing, fingered into legato, and let it grow into crescendo.”
