After the first blush of sin comes its indifference.

Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive, half wishing they were dead to save the shame. The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow; They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats, and flare up bodily, wings and all. What then? Who's sorry for a gnat or girl?
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Send forth the child and childish man together, and blush for the pride that libels our own old happy state, and gives its title to an ugly and distorted image.
Once my heart was captured, reason was shown the door, deliberately and with a sort of frantic joy. I accepted everything, I believed everything, without struggle, without suffering, without regret, without false shame. How can one blush for what one adores?

One is never so dangerous when one has no shame, than when one has grown too old to blush.
Marquis de Sade
I think, at first blush, the '60s always enticed me. There's something about the '60s, it's not hard to like it.
Men blush less for their crimes than for their weaknesses and vanity.
Jean de la Bruyere
It is part of a poor spirit to undervalue himself and blush.
New York State is upside down and backwards; high taxes and low performance. The New York State government was at one time a national model. Now, unfortunately, it's a national disgrace. Sometimes, the corruption in Albany could even make Boss Tweed blush.

On first blush, Hold 'em seems like a ridiculously simple game.
