A Quote by Fran Lebowitz on drugs, illness, impossibility, love, pleasure, reality, and romance

Romantic love is mental illness. But it's a pleasurable one. It's a drug. It distorts reality, and that's the point of it. It would be impossible to fall in love with someone that you really saw.

A Quote by Clare Boothe Luce on creativity, deed, egotism, facts, idealism, lies, nature, nobility, romance, speech, and words

Lying increases the creative faculties, expands the ego, lessens the friction of social contacts. . . . It is only in lies, wholeheartedly and bravely told, that human nature attains through words and speech the forebearance, the nobility, the romance, the idealism, that-being what it is-it falls so short of in fact and in deed.

Clare Boothe Luce (1903 - 1987)
