Mae West...a romance writer at heart

This blog started as a composition of humorous and truthful quotes on romance, love and sex. Until I ran across some Mae West funnies. I think she was a romance writer at heart.

Marriage ain't a word, it's a sentence. (Scarlet Pimpernel) Okay, I left this one in because I like it so much.
I'll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure.
Don't keep a man guessing too long - he's sure to find the answer somewhere else.

Women like a man with a past, but they prefer a man with a present.

I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it.

I have found men who didn't know how to kiss. I've always found time to teach them.

Love thy neighbor -- and if he happens to be tall, debonair and devastating, it will be that much easier.

If a little is great, and a lot is better, then way too much is just about right!

Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere.

Every man I meet wants to protect me. I can't figure out what from.

Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.

Isn't she witty? There are so many clever women out there. Cher also has some good one-liners. Who else?

Great post! I have always loved Mae West and her quotes. She was a woman before her time. I know a lot of people don't like Roseanne Barr, but when she first started in stand up clubs she really had some good stuff about men and women.

I didn't see much of Roseanne's stuff, but I think women like these demonstrate a keen understanding of men and how relationships really work!
