“Women are attracted to bad boys not because they want to fall in love… we just want to ride on the backs of their motor bikes.”
Dermot Davis, The Younger Man

“People don’t read to enlighten themselves or seek to gain some valuable insight into their own psychology. People read to escape.”
Dermot Davis, Brain: The Man Who Wrote the Book That Changed the World

“Could the entire notion of finding one’s soul mate be a simple case of looking for ourselves in another body? Is the “soul mate” really just the best approximation of ourselves that we can find?”
Dermot Davis, Zen and Sex

“Could the entire notion of finding one’s soul mate be a simple case of looking for ourselves in another body? Is the “soul mate” really just the best approximation of ourselves that we can find?”
Dermot Davis, Zen and Sex

“Romantic love has its place but to define relationship solely in romantic terms is like describing marriage only by what a couple does on their honeymoon.”
Dermot Davis, Zen and Sex

“Women want a lot of sex with the man they love; men want to have a lot of sex with a lot of different women.”
Dermot Davis, Zen and Sex

“Maybe the Buddha was right: pain and suffering are the only true constants in life.”
Dermot Davis, Zen and Sex

“What is a life lived without passion? he asked himself. And what is passion, but a yearning of the soul for recognition and self-expression? The beauty within seeks beauty without.”
Dermot Davis, Stormy Weather
