- The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
- Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.
- There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved. It is God’s finger on man’s shoulder.

- Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.
Charles M. Schulz, Charlie Brown in “Peanuts”

And I am Marie of Romania.
