Quotations about Flirtation



If you're a gifted flirt, talking about the price of eggs will do as well as any other subject.  ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1963


Coquetry, with all its pranks and teasings, makes the spice to your dinner — the mulled wine to your supper. ~Ik Marvel


Girls, like flowers, are unconscious flirts. ~Herbert Dickinson Ward, Lauriel: The Love Letters of an American Girl, 1901


Women flirt to keep their stock high, men to get somewhere.  ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1963


The greatest miracle of love is the cure of coquetry. ~François VI, duc de La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)


Beauty is power: a smile is its sword. ~Charles Reade


Women know not the whole of their coquetry. ~François VI, duc de La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)


The coquets of both sexes are self-lovers, and that is a love no other whatever can dispossess. ~John Gay


Coquetry is the essential characteristic, and the prevalent humor of women; but they do not all practice it, because the coquetry of some is restrained by fear or by reason. ~François VI, duc de La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)


Coquetry whets the appetite; flirtation depraves it. Coquetry is the thorn that guards the rose — easily trimmed off when once plucked. Flirtation is like the slime on water-plants, making them hard to handle, and when caught, only to be cherished in slimy waters. ~Ik Marvel
