Famous quotes containing the word century:

    A strange effect of marriage, such as the nineteenth century has made it! The boredom of married life inevitably destroys love, when love has preceded marriage. And yet, as a philosopher has observed, it speedily brings about, among people who are rich enough not to have to work, an intense boredom with all quiet forms of enjoyment. And it is only dried up hearts, among women, that it does not predispose to love.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)

    They are fools who do not know how much the half exceeds the whole.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)

    Whoever, fleeing marriage and the sorrows that women cause, does not wish to wed comes to a deadly old age.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)
