If we’re dating I will get you sexually frustrated a lot just to amuse myself
There is no satisfaction greater than being an amazing tease

"We went to see Duel of Angels, a play with Vivien Leigh. We went backstage and met Vivien. Lucy [Ball] and I went to the Brown Derby across the street. She was very depressed and just sat there and fiddled with her food. She said, ‘What I do is so meaningless, so unimportant. She is such a great actress. Look what she can do!’ To cheer her up, I said, “But, Lucy, think of the millions of people you’ve affected. Could Vivien ever, ever affect that many millions of people like you do?” She turned to me and said, ‘Have you ever heard of that little movie called Gone with the Wind?’” -Bob Osborne

The Little Mermaid
"Why have not we an immortal soul?" asked the little mermaid mournfully. "I would give gladly all the hundreds of years that I have to live, to be a human being only for one day, and to have the hope of knowing the happiness of that glorious world above the stars." "You must not think of that," said the old woman; "we feel ourselves to be much happier and much better off than human beings." "So I shall die," said the little mermaid, "and as the foam of the sea I shall be driven about never again to hear the music of the waves, or to see the pretty flowers nor the red sun."
