Richard Francis Burton
Do what thy manhood bids thee do,
from none but self expect applause.
He noblest lives and noblest dies
who makes and keeps his self-made laws.
till thou has done this, thou art but a slave;
for it is almost as well to be subjected to another's appetite
as to thine own.
If you can’t laugh together in bed, the chances are you are incompatible, anyway. I’d rather hear a girl laugh well than try to turn me on with long, silent, soulful, secret looks. If you can laugh with a woman, everything else falls into place.
The dearest ambition of a slave is not liberty, but to have a slave of his own.
