Famous quotes containing the word mutual:

    It is with such eyes ... that a pair of angels exiled among men ... gaze at one another in mutual recognition.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)

    Louise Bryant: I’m sorry if you don’t believe in mutual independence and free love and respect.
    Eugene O’Neill: Don’t give me a lot of parlor socialism that you learned in the village. If you were mine, I wouldn’t share you with anybody or anything. It would be just you and me. You’d be at the center of it all. You know it would feel a lot more like love than being left alone with your work.
    Warren Beatty (b. 1937)

    Marry first, and love will come after is a shocking assertion; since a thousand things may happen to make the state but barely tolerable, when it is entered into with mutual affection.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)
