Random Quotes

Some not so random quotes by one of our favorite writers, thanks to Miss Lekic.

"Woman begins by resisting a man's advances and ends by blocking his retreat."

Oscar Wilde

"The secret of life is to appreciate the pleasure of being terribly, terribly deceived."

Oscar Wilde :: A Woman of No Importance, Act 3

And then another even less random quote from a book I haven't quite yet finished reading yet:
"Insensibly he formed the most delightful habit in the world, the habit of reading: he did not know that thus he was providing himself with refuge from all the distress of life; he did not know either that he was creating for himself an unreal world which would make the real world of every day a source of bitter disappointment."

On Human Bondage :: W. Somerset Maugham

Love is like a book you see, you resist it at the beginning but after the first couple of pages you never want to let it down, you never want it to end. Unless of course it's one of those dreadful boring books that seduces you with its covers and bright reviews but proves to be nothing more than bitter disappointment.
