No writer offers such lively, pointed, puckish insights: "Neurotics are awfully quick to notice other people’s mentalities." "It is impossible to persuade a man who does not disagree, but smiles." "The sacrifice of pleasure is of course itself a pleasure." "It is impossible to repent of love. The sin of love does not exist." "She wasn’t a person to whom things happen." "You look for one thing and you find another." "It calms you down, a good comb."

Drink in the pleasures of this little volume along with the benefits of taking up such advice as "Never make excuses but if you must, never make more than one? It gives the appearance of insincerity." And "Beware of men bearing flowers."
