16. I require three things in a man: he must be handsome, ruthless, and stupid.
17. Now I know the things I know, and I do the things I do; and if you do not like me so, to hell, my love, with you!
18. Better be left by twenty dears / Than lie in a love-less bed; / Better a loaf that is wet with tears, / Than cold, unsalted bread.
19. Four be the things I'd have been better without: love, curiosity, freckles and doubt.
20. It serves me right for putting all my eggs in one bastard.
21.By the time you swear you are his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying -
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying."
