Famous quotes containing the word bachelor:

    James Bond in his Sean Connery days ... was the first well-known bachelor on the American scene who was not a drifter or a degenerate and did not eat out of cans.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)

    A Bachelor of Arts is one who makes love to a lot of women, and yet has the art to remain a bachelor.
    Helen Rowland (1875–1950)

    The wonderful scope and variety of female loveliness, if too long suffered to sway us without decision, shall finally confound all power of selection. The confirmed bachelor is, in America, at least, quite as often the victim of a too profound appreciation of the infinite charmingness of woman, as made solitary for life by the legitimate empire of a cold and tasteless temperament.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
