“What a fuss people make about fidelity! Why, even in love it is purely a question for physiology. It has nothing to do with our own will. Young men want to be faithful, and are not; old men want to be faithless, and cannot: that is all one can say.”
—Oscar Wilde (18541900)
“All this fuss about sleeping together. For physical pleasure Id sooner go to my dentist any day.”
