Character’s Quotes
As if a woman ever loved a man for his virtue.
If a man hasn’t what’s necessary to make a woman love him then it’s his fault not hers.
If people only spoke when they had something to say, the human race would soon lose the power of speech.
I wouldn’t delude myself for a second that you were in love with me.
Men are incalculable. I thought you were just like everybody else, and now I feel I don’t know the first thing about you.
Surely my comforts are no concern to you.
