Literary Plug: Shanghai Baby

"A learned man should also understand romance: he should know what the beauty of a woman is, what a good woman is, and what a woman's sorrow is. At the very least, he should be capable of flirting. Love first enters by the way of the ear, and only then reaches the heart. "

"Making love with a woman and sleeping with a woman are two separate passions, not merely different but opposite. Love does not make itself felt in the desire for copulation (a desire that extends to an infinite number of women) but in the desire for a shared sleep (a desire limited to one woman)."

Milan Kundera
