In each human heart are a tiger, a pig, an ass and a nightingale. Diversity of character is due to their unequal activity.



There are three sexes; males, females and girls.

Women in love are less ashamed than men. They have less to be ashamed of.



While your friend holds you affectionately by both your hands you are safe, for you can watch both his.
