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

Perfection is the greatest flirt of them all. ~Henry Stanley Haskins, "Marginalia," Meditations in Wall Street, 1940
