Famous quotes containing the word romance:

    Twenty years of romance makes a woman look like a ruin; but twenty years of marriage makes her look like a public building.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    A guide book is addressed to those who plan to follow the traveler, doing what he has done, but more selectively. A travel book, in its purest, is addressed to those who do not plan to follow the traveler at all, but who require the exotic or comic anomalies, wonders and scandals of the literary form romance which their own place or time cannot entirely supply.
    Paul Fussell (b. 1924)

    Like many another romance, the romance of the family turns sour when the money runs out. If we really cared about families, we would not let “born again” patriarchs send up moral abstractions as a smokescreen for the scandal of American family economics.
    Letty Cottin Pogrebin (20th century)
