  • In nine cases out of ten, a woman had better show more affection than she feels.
  • Most people would rather give than get affection.
  • The affections are like lightning: you cannot tell where they will strike till they have fallen.
  • wash my hands of those who imagine chattering to be knowledge, silence to be ignorance, and affection to be art.
  • Every gift, though it be small, is in reality great if given with affection.
  • We may not return the affection of those who like us, but we always respect their good judgment.
  • The hardest of all is learning to be a well of affection, and not a fountain; to show them we love them not when we feel like it, but when they do
  • You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
  • A slight touch of friendly malice and amusement towards those we love keeps our affections for them from turning flat.
  • Caresses, expressions of one sort or another, are necessary to the life of the affections as leaves are to the life of a tree. If they are wholly restrained, love will die at the roots.
  • Talk not of wasted affection; affection never was wasted.
