Quotes by Honore de Balzac


The fact is that love is of two kinds, one which commands, and one which obeys. The two are quite distinct, and the passion to which the one gives rise is not the passion of the other.

A woman knows the face of the man she loves as a sailor knows the open sea.

Love is the poetry of the senses.
