I am so tired tired see

I am so tired – so tired.
I see too many people,
Read too many books.
Do too many things.
I hate the theaters,
I hate my work,
I want you, – only you….
Come to me between the cool sheets
And let me burrow my head in your shoulder….
~Pauline Cohn, "Rest"

Theres no denying that the only real

There’s no denying that the only real unhappiness in life is losing a man…. Death isn’t nature’s greatest mistake – falling in love is.  If we didn’t do that, all the misery in life would be cut right out of it.  Oh my goodness, so would all the fun.  So, what are you gonna do about it.  ~When Ladies Meet, 1941 movie written by Rachel Crothers, John Meehan, Leon Gordon, S.K. Lauren, and Anita Loos, spoken by the character Bridgie Drake  (not sure if this is also in the 1933 movie or 1932 play – anyone know?)TPV

They who meet on an april night

They who meet on an April night are forever lost in love, if there’s moonlight all about and there’s no moon above.  ~E.Y. "Yip" Harburg and Fred Saidy, dialogue just before the song "Old Devil Moon" in the musical Finian’s Rainbow  (Thanks, Katherine!)

Infatuation is when you think hes as

Infatuation is when you think he’s as sexy as Robert Redford, as smart as Henry Kissinger, as noble as Ralph Nader, as funny as Woody Allen, and as athletic as Jimmy Conners.  Love is when you realize that he’s as sexy as Woody Allen, as smart as Jimmy Connors, as funny as Ralph Nader, as athletic as Henry Kissinger and nothing like Robert Redford – but you’ll take him anyway.  ~Judith Viorst, Redbook, 1975
