INTRIGUE
[ Also see Conspiracy ]

If often happens too, both in courts and in cabinets, that there are two things going on together,--a main plot and an under-plot; and he that understands only one of them will, in all probability, be the dupe of both. A mistress may rule a monarch, but some obscure favorite may rule the mistress.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

There are many women who have never intrigued, and many men who have never gamed; but those who have done either but once are very extraordinary animals.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Audacity as against modesty will win the battle over most men.
      - Dorothee DeLuzy

Intrigue is a court distemper.
      - Dorothee DeLuzy

As love increases, prudence diminishes.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

There are many women who never have had one intrigue; but there are few who have had only one.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

Every woman is at heart a rake.
      - Alexander Pope

When women oppose themselves to the projects and ambition of men, they excite their lively resentment; if in their youth they meddle with political intrigues, their modesty must suffer.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)
