The best sex & love quotes ever

With a new year having begun, it's time to take stock, to assess your emotional inventory and see where you stand before blazing forward.

With that in mind, we have gathered some of the greatest, funniest, weirdest and most prescient sex-and-dating utterances through the ages as a springboard to your soul-searching... or to use as a handy time-wasting diversion. Your choice.

On Marriage...

"What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow."
- Nathaniel Hawthorne

"I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life."
- Rita Rudner

(I guess we've become a little more jaded since Hawthorne's time.)

"Always get married early in the morning. That way, if it doesn't work out, you haven't wasted a whole day."
- Mickey Rooney

"The appropriate age for marriage is around 18 for girls and 37 for men."
- Aristotle

(Who knew that Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones were such well-read students of Aristotle's works?)

On Marriage and Sex...

"God created sex. Priests created marriage."
- Voltaire

"A man marries to have a home, but also because he doesn't want to be bothered with sex and all that sort of thing."
- W. Somerset Maugham

"Extra-marital sex is as overrated as pre-marital sex. And marital sex, come to think of it."
- Simon Gray

"I know nothing about sex, because I was always married."
- Zsa Zsa Gabor

(Nine marriages -- you must have learned something!)
