[ Also see Constancy Courtship Fickleness Flattery Gallantry Inconstancy ]

Women find it far more difficult to overcome their inclination to coquetry than to overcome their love.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

Though it is pleasant weaving nets, it is wiser to make cages.
      - Thomas Moore

Then in a kiss she breath'd her various arts,
  Of trifling prettily with wounded hearts;
    A mind for love, but still a changing mind;
      The lisp affected, and the glance design'd;
        The sweet confusing blush, the secret wink,
          The gentle-swimming walk, the courteous sink;
            The stare for strangeness fit, for scorn the frown
              For decent yielding, looks declining down;
                The practised languish, where well-feign'd desire
                  Would own its melting in a mutual fire;
                    Gay smiles to comfort; April showers to move;
                      And all the nature, all the art of love.
      - Thomas Parnell,
        Hesiod; Or, the Rise of Woman

Faints into airs and languishes with pride;
  On the rich quilt sinks with becoming woe,
    Wrapt in a gown for sickness and for show.
      - Alexander Pope

"With every pleasing; every prudent part,
  Say, What can Chloe want?"--she wants a heart.
    She speaks, behaves, and acts just as she ought;
      But never, never reach'd one generous thought.
      - Alexander Pope

A bikini is not a bikini unless it can be pulled through a wedding ring.
      - Louis Reard

The ladies--Heaven bless them!--are, as a general rule, coquettes from babyhood upwards.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

A flirt is like a dipper attached to a hydrant; every one is at liberty to drink from it, but no one desires to carry it away.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis
