Famous quotes containing the words men and/or summer:

    When a woman marries again it is because she detested her first husband. When a man marries again it is because he adored his first wife. Women try their luck; men risk theirs.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    I swear,
    I most solemnly swear, on all the bric-à-brac
    of summer loves, I know
    you not.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
