It is easier to be a lover than a husband, for the same reason that it is more difficult to be witty every day, than to say bright things from time to time. - Honoré de Balzac (The Physiology of Marriage Quotes)

It is easier to be a lover than a husband, for the same reason that it is more difficult to be witty every day, than to say bright things from time to time.[Il est plus facile d’être amant que mari, par la ra ison qu’il est plus difficile d’avoir de l’esprit tous les jours que de dire de jolies choses de temps en temps.]
