NEXT TOPIC: "Oh, how do I love thee..."
This upcoming week, the LadyKillers will take aim at romance. Speaking of "taking aim," no one does it better than Oscar Wilde, to wit:
“They spoil every romance by trying to make it last forever.”
“When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one's self, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what world calls a romance.”
“To love one's self is the beginning of a life-long romance.”
Oooooh, Oscar. Such a cynic.
