"First love is a kind of vaccination which saves a man from catching the complaint a second time."
"Behind every fortune there is a crime."
"No man should marry before he has studied anatomy and dissected the body of a woman."
"Everything is bilateral in the domain of thought. Ideas are binary. Janus is the myth of criticism as well as genius. Only God is triangular."
-Honore de Balzac-
