KING HENRY VIII TO ANNE BOLEYN (WHILE HE WAS STILL MARRIED TO CATHERINE OF ARAGON), 1527

Though it does not belong to a gentleman to take his lady in the place of a servant, however, in following your desires, I willingly grant it, that so you may be more agreeably in the place that you yourself have chosen, than you have been in that which I gave you.

On this Human Heart - HINTS FOR LOVERS

It does not take much to make two hearts beat faster than one. The heart can deceive itself when it cannot deceive another.--Which will be cold comfort to some lovers, though it may console others.

On Marriage and Married Life - HINTS FOR LOVERS

The unit of the State is the family; therefore the State makes laws, not to suit the tastes or convenience of the husband and the wife, but for the good and preservation of the family. All of which, surely, is right and proper, since It is the business of the State to make laws governing the welfare of the generations to come.

On Engagements and on Being Engaged - HINTS FOR LOVERS

Never is a girl more jubilant, never more buoyant, never so charming, so blithesome, or so debonair, as when she is the gazetted about-to-be bride of the man of her girlish choice.

On kisses - HINTS FOR LOVERS

Many are the varieties of kisses; as many, probably, as the varieties of kisses; as many, probably, as the variety of lips--and of the owners thereof.

On Jealousy - HINTS FOR LOVERS

Jealousy is no proof of love, for often jealousy is but rancor under a sense of humiliation.

On Men and Women - HINTS FOR LOVERS

A curious and latent hostility divides the sexes. It seems as they could not approach each other without alarums and excursions. Always the presence of the one rouses anxiety in the breast of the other; they stand to arms; they resort to tactics; they maneuver.

On Beauty - HINTS FOR LOVERS

The feeling for beauty is probably more highly developed in man than in woman. (N. B. Perhaps this is the source of the beauty of women.) Nevertheless, It is a question that perhaps will never be settled, how much value should be placed upon mere beauty.

On Making Love - HINTS FOR LOVERS

In the chess-like game of love-making, no woman plays for check-mate: the game interests her too much to bring it to a finish. What pleases her most is stale-mate, where, though the King cannot be captured, the captress can maneuver without end.

On Lovers - HINTS FOR LOVERS

Lovers think the world was made for them.--And so perhaps it was.

On Love - HINTS FOR LOVERS

All things point to the infinite; and love more than all things else. Love is the most antimonial of emotions: it worships, yet it will not stop at sacrilege; it will build about its object a temple of adoration, then desecrate the fane; it will give all, yet ruthlessly seize everything; it delights in pleasing, yet it sometimes wittingly wounds; its ineffable tenderness often merges into an inclemency extraordinary; --symbol of universal duality, it is at once demonical and angelic.

On Women - HINTS FOR LOVERS

The man who declares he understands women, declares his folly. For, if woman were not such a mystery, she would not be such an attraction.

On Men - HINTS FOR LOVERS

The greater a man's faith in himself, the greater his mistress hers in him. And perhaps, the greater his mistress her faith in a man, the greater his in himself. For a woman's faith in a man works wonders.

On Girls - HINTS FOR LOVERS

A girl is a complicated thing. It is made up of clothes, smiles, a pompadour, things of which space and prudence forbid the enumeration here. These things by themselves do not constitute a girl which is obvious; nor is any one girl without these things which is not too obvious. Where the things end and the girl begins many men have tried to find out.

Deep in your eyes...

It’s great to feel loved and wanted by someone as sweet as you. It feels great that each one of your gestures and caresses has a reason to be; they are not just automatic gestures but truly felted ones, coming from the bottom of your heart just to cheer me up and make me happy.

It´s harder without love

Love has to be sowed in a field of trust. Only this way it may be born, and grow, and finally bear fruits. So you should follow the orientation that your immense heart gives you and rely your love on who loves you the most and dedicates you all the attention, concern and affection.
