    "There are a number of mechanical devices which increase sexual arousal, particularly in women.

    Chief among these is the Mercedes-Benz 380SL convertible."

    More by Parker:

    Two-Volume Novel

    The sun's gone dim, and
    The moon's turned black;
    For I loved him, and
    He didn't love back.


    The Last Question

    New love, new love, where are you to lead me?
    All along a narrow way that marks a crooked line.
    How are you to slake me, and how are you to feed me?
    With bitter yellow berries, and a sharp new wine.

    New love, new love, shall I be forsaken?
    One shall go a-wandering, and one of us must sigh.
    Sweet it is to slumber, but how shall we awaken-
    Whose will be the broken heart, when dawn comes by?


    One Perfect Rose

    A single flow'r he sent me, since we met.
    All tenderly his messenger he chose;
    Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet-
    One perfect rose.

    I knew the language of the floweret;
    "My fragile leaves," it said, "his heart enclose."
    Love long has taken for his amulet
    One perfect rose.

    Why is it no one ever sent me yet
    One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
    Ah no, it's always just my luck to get
    One perfect rose.

    Men seldom make passes
    At girls who wear glasses.


    I just love the cynicism in her writing, what can I say!?
    I envision a world where people dawning long white robes and elaborate headdresses run rampant down the streets, waving their arms in the air while screaming "we've gone mad, we've gone mad", like defrocked monks breaking the silence of ages past.

    That's a good one


    Oh, how could I forget Mae West?!

    "Marriage is a great institution, but I'm not ready for an institution."

    "Women with pasts interest men... they hope history will repeat itself."

    "It is better to be looked over than overlooked."

    "When women go wrong, men go right after them."

    There is only one happiness in life,
    to love and be loved.-George Sand

    Love is friendship set on fire.-Jeremy Taylor
    Turman found a copy of The Graduate, and thought highly enough of the story that he made a movie he considered to be 90-percent faithful to the book.

    But Turman and director Mike Nichols made one key adaptation, changing the Braddocks from WASP-y blonde characters into a dark-haired, more ethnic-looking family.

    Tho I don't particularly agree with it it's worth noting

    Yeah, I thought that love meant always having to say your sorry! Even if you haven't done anything!
