William Shakespeare
“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.”


 Henry Miller
“What holds the world together, as I have learned from bitter experience, is sexual intercourse.”


Charles Bukowski
“I liked your hand-walking act; that got me hotter than hell…. everything you do gets me hotter than hell…”

Franz Kafka:
“Last night I dreamed about you. What happened in detail I can hardly remember, all I know is that we kept merging into one another. I was you, you were me. Finally you somehow caught fire.”


Virginia Woolf:
“… throw over your man, and we’ll go to Hampton Court and dine on the river together and walk in the garden in the moonlight and come home late and have a bottle of wine and get tipsy, and I’ll tell you all the things I have in my head, millions, myriads — They won’t stir by day, only by dark on the river. Think of that. Throw over your man, I say, and come.”


Gustave Flaubert
“I will cover you with love when I next see you, with caresses, with ecstasy. I want to gorge you with all the joys of the flesh, so that you faint and die.”
